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.

Submitting STI

The Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Link system (E-Link), developed and maintained by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), is used by for electronically submitting scientific and technical information (STI) products that are created during DOE-funded research or other work. E-Link is used by DOE-funded financial assistance recipients (i.e., grantees), DOE national laboratories and other major facilities, and by DOE offices at HQ and in the field.

Within E-Link, OSTI provides different Announcement Notices for different audiences and submittal types. Business rules for metadata and full- text handling are associated with each Announcement Notice.  In addition, some Announcement Notices can be submitted via either manual or automated methods.  The table below tells you which Announcement Notice and its associated business rules you must follow for your situation.

Before you start, the "Submittal Basics" for STI can be found here.
