  1. DOE Patents Available for Licensing (DOE PAL) provides abstracting and indexing coverage of the DOE patent literature, including patent applications, that concerns any apsect of energy production, conservation, and utilization. The citations are arranged by subject category. DOE is prepared to grant exclusive or nonexclusive, revocable licenses under DOE-owned US patents and patent applications in accordance with the provisions of 10CFR781.
  2. DOE's Energy Data Base (EDB) at the Technical Information Center in Oak Ridge, Tenn. is the most-comprehensive data base available. Acquisition, cataloging, and indexing procedures are described for EDB, which covers both the domestic and international literature. EDB is available to the general public through the BRS, Lockheed, and SDC information retrieval services. (DCK)
  3. This publication provides an outline of the OSTI international program, with emphasis on activities in 1985. The international energy R and D information acquired through this program in 1985 and available for access via the Energy Data Base (EDB) is analyzed by country of publication, type of literature, and subject matter. Country of publication determines coverage responsibility for the exchange agreements included in the OSTI international program. The specific research facility and country where the research was performed are also included in each research summary exchanged, and these data elements are available for interrogation and analysis in EDB.
  4. Research and development are integral parts of the innovation process, but they make no economic contribution unless the knowledge generated is integrated into the production process or manifested in a new or improved product that is sold on the market. Successful innovation depends in a large part on the effective integration of market and technical information by the innovating organization. Various Congressional and Executive actions have been taken in the last few years to enhance technology transfer and information transfer to assist in the process. The DOE Technical Information Center has the following ongoing programs to promote innovation through increasedmore » information availability: (1) a technology-transfer program to announce information, devices, or processes with potential application in industry; (2) bilateral and multilateral information-exchange agreements to acquisition the international energy-related information; (3) a computerized Technical Information Management System to ensure proper and timely reporting of DOE-sponsored R and D information; (4) a computerized Research in Progress retrieval system containing information about DOE ongoing research projects; (5) a computerized Energy Data Base retrieval system containing information on all foreign and domestic energy-related R and D; and (6) a series of publications to announce all energy-related R and D information. Also the Office of Energy Research, DOE Headquarters, is coordinating the technology transfer program of the DOE Federal Laboratories.« less
  5. Transborder data flow or transnational data flow connotes the process or act of moving information across national borders. This summary paper is not restricted to data intended for processing and storage in automated data-processing systems, but includes the communication and use of information in the very widest sense, covering all forms of recorded and transmitted information expressed in graphic, written, spoken, electronic, printed, recorded, and film form. Categories of information flow include production and distribution control, financial management and planning, travel reservations, scientific research and development, environmental monitoring, financial transactions, personnel and payroll data, government and public authority data, etc.more » The issues and problems involved tend to focus on digitally-coded, computer-processed information, but the concerns apply generally to all forms of recorded and transmitted data, particularly in the case of scientific and technical information. News-gathering activities and general communications, however, are considered outside the scope of the present discussion.« less
  6. One of the goals of the OSTI international information program is to maximize the availability and usage of foreign scientific and technical information within the DOE and its contractor organizations. This publication provides an outline of the OSTI international program, with emphasis on activities in 1984. In addition, the international energy R and D information acquired through this program in 1984 and available for access via the Energy Data Base (EDB) is analyzed by country of publication, type of literature, and subject matter. The basis for this analysis is country of publication because country of publication determines coverage responsibility formore » the exchange agreements included in the OSTI international program. Of course, the specific research facility and country where the research was performed are also included in each research summary exchanged, and these data elements are available for interrogation and analysis in EDB.« less
  7. This bibliography comprises 727 references compiled through the period October 30, 1976, to June 30, 1976. The references were retrieved from the Nuclear Science Abstracts (NSA) data base using a computerized information retrieval system and were formatted for publication with indexes by computer. Subject descriptors are included to reflect the information content of each article. Part I includes 491 references dealing with the production and chemical, nuclear, physical, and biological properties and health, safety, and environmental aspects of elements with Z greater than or equal to 95. Part II includes 24 references dealing with the natural occurrence of the transplutoniummore » elements. Part III contains 212 references on the environmental aspects of neptunium and plutonium. Author, report number, and subject indexes are included.with attempts to locate or prove the existence of the transplutonium elements in nature. Part III contains 212 references on the environmental aspects of neptunium and plutonium. Author, report number, and subject indexes are included.« less
  8. This bibliography, prepared especially for distribution at the IAEA/ERDA International Symposium on the Transuranium Nuclides in the Environment, San Francisco, November 17-21, 1975, comprises 589 references on the transplutonium elements compiled through the period January 1 to October 15, 1975. The references were retrieved from the Nuclear Science Abstracts (NSA) data base using a computerized information retrieval system and were formatted for publication with indexes by computer. Part I includes 565 references dealing with the production and chemical, nuclear, physical, and biological properties and health, safety, and environmental aspects of elements with Z greater than or equal to 95. Partmore » II includes 24 references dealing with the natural occurrence of the transplutonium elements. This collection of references is concerned with attempts to locate or prove the existence of the transplutonium elements in nature. Part III, a feature added to enhance the usefulness of this bibliography to the participants at this symposium, contains 772 references on the environmental aspects of neptunium and plutonium retrieved from NSA through the period June 1, 1973 through October 15, 1975. Author, report number, and subject indexes are included. (auth)« less
