OSTI is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program within the Office of Science, the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States. Since 1947, OSTI has advanced science and sustained technological creativity by making R\&D findings available and useful to DOE researchers and the American people. OSTI rounds up isolated sources of science information from around the globe for the creation of one-stop search tools, thereby accelerating access to knowledge and speeding the pace of discovery. Through collaboration, OSTI has developed and maintains the U.S. portal to federal government scientific and technical information, Science.gov; as well as the global searchable science gateway, WorldWideScience.org. These sites and many other scientific Web search tools can be accessed through the OSTI home page.
This collection provides searching of more than 1 million scientific e-prints. The E-print Network is a deep Web source of scientific and technical information created by researchers active in a wide range of fields, including chemistry, biology and life sciences, materials science, nuclear sciences and engineering, energy research, and computer and information technologies. Information customers can use E-print Network to browse scientific Web sites, find scientific societies, receive alerts and search and access scientific e-prints, the documents circulated electronically to facilitate peer exchange and scientific advancement. OSTI leads development and adaptation of new capabilities for preservation and dissemination of research important to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
