STIP: Making ProgressEmbracing the Future

Scientific and Technical Information ProgramAnnual Working MeetingApril 18, 2012

Walt Warnick, Ph.D.

Director, Office of Scientific and Technical Information


Let s start with the end

Have we made progress?

Let’s Start with the End!

Here’s the final slide of my 2011 presentation to the STIP community

Ultimate Goal: Interlinking of All Types of Digital Assets


Progress

Progress?

 YES

FY2011 Submissions

Highest level in years

Spanning wide range of media types

However, still mostly textual (technical reports, metadata for journals)


2011 by the numbers

2011 by the numbers

20% increase in STIP submissions over

previous FY

32% increase in Web traffic over previous FY


Additional successes

Additional Successes

  • Launched multimedia product ScienceCinema, providing speech-indexed search of 1,200 DOE and CERN videos

  • Extended visibility of DOE R&D information through Science.gov and WorldWideScience.org (including automated multilingual translations and mobile access)

  • Serving DOE data centers by providing digital object identifiers (DOIs) to numeric datasets, ensuring permanent access


Importance of stip reaffirmed in two key doe documents

Importance of STIPREAFFIRMED in two key DOE Documents!

Quadrennial Technology Review press release:

“…the Department’s role as a source of information…is unique and indispensable in the advancement of energy technologies.”

“Our success should be measured not when a project is completed or an experiment concluded, but when scientific and technical information is disseminated....

— 2011 Department of Energy Strategic Plan, Assure Excellence in R&D Management


The stip equation

The STIP Equation

scientific and technical information dissemination = DOE SUCCESS IN ASSURING EXCELLENCE IN R&D MANAGEMENT

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE YOUR ROLE WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT AND

THE RESEARCH COMMUNITY

  • Includes a number of initiatives to enhance transparency of DOE R&D results

  • “High value” data sets initially identified by DOE include DOE R&D results included in:

    • Information Bridge

    • DOepatents

    • Conference Papers & Proceedings

    • Energy Citations Database

Big data is a big deal

Big Data Is a Big Deal

OSTI among highlights of ongoing Federal government programs that address the challenges of, and tap the opportunities afforded by, the big data revolution to advance agency missions and further scientific discovery and innovation.

Fact Sheet: Big Data Across the Federal Government

March 29, 2012

“OSTI, the only U.S. federal agency member of DataCite (a global consortium of leading scientific and technical information organizations) plays a key role in shaping the policies and technical implementations of the practice of data citation, which enables efficient reuse and verification of data so that the impact of data may be tracked, and a scholarly structure that recognizes and rewards data producers may be established.”


Progress in other key areas

Progressin Other Key Areas

  • Recognition of need to improve classified STI submissions

  • NNSA memo to labs, June 2011

  • Enterprise Secure Network

  • Classified E-Link

Progress in other key areas1

Progressin Other Key Areas

  • Journal publisher partnerships underway

  • Aimed at enhancing journal article full-text searching.

    We are making citations of DOE-funded journal articles available in the search & retrieval applications operated by OSTI

NOTE: Citations of DOE-funded journal articles still to be submitted by sites

Publisher partnerships complement – do not replace - STIP submissions

DOE’s STI Repository should be as comprehensive as possible

  • OSTI is actively pursuing making datasets more accessible

  • First live dataset minted with DataCite on 8/10/2011 from ORNL ARM

Stip making progress embracing the future

We are working with CrossRef and publishers in the FundRef project to make it easier to identify funding agency connections in journal articles. The goal is to more effectively demonstrate DOE's R&D outputs.  As we move further into this project, we'll be engaging the STIP community.

(a quick review)

America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010

SEC. 103. INTERAGENCY PUBLIC ACCESS COMMITTEE.

(a) ESTABLISHMENT.—The Director shall establish a working group under the National Science and Technology Council with the responsibility to coordinate Federal science agency research and policies related to the dissemination and long-term stewardship of the results of unclassified research, including digital data and peer-reviewed scholarly publications, supported wholly, or in part, by funding from the Federal science agencies.

OSTI Director is DOE rep and one of the co-chairs for the “Public Access to Scientific Publications” (PASP) task force focused on Scholarly Publications

The Future

REALITY CHECK

Reality:

Workforce downsizing across the Complex

Labs have and are experiencing reductions

OSTI is transitioning thru loss of 14 Federal employees through buyouts

Budgetary constraints

BUT Emphasis remains:

Transparency; i.e., accountability

Collaboration; i.e., partnerships and cooperation

The Future

Building Blocks

During the course of this Working Meeting, ask ourselves:

What building blocks can we work towards and are within our reach to make DOE’s STI foundation stronger

and help achieve the ultimate goal?
