The home of the U.S. Department of Energy's Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP)

Here you will find background, guidance, and more to ensure that DOE-funded STI is appropriately managed and preserved to support scientific research now and in the future.

STI-Related DOE Directives

Dissemination of scientific and technical information (STI) resulting from Department of Energy (DOE) research and development programs to promote scientific progress and public understanding has been a fundamental requirement since the founding of the Department and its predecessor agencies. A number of laws require the Department to make its information available, while others place some limits on the dissemination of scientific and technical information for which the unauthorized release would be detrimental to national interests. Departmental directives are DOE's primary means of establishing policies, requirements, responsibilities, and procedures for Departmental elements and contractors.  DOE O 241.1B is the primary DOE directive on STI management and provides the overall DOE objective, requirements, and responsibilities within which these STI mandates are to be met. The following directives are also relevant to the management of STI.
