Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI)
  • OSTI is an organization within the U.S Department of Energy’s Office of Science
  • Located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee
  • OSTI has been in operation since 1947 and is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
osti s mission
OSTI’s Mission:

To advance science and sustain technological creativity by making R&D findings available and useful to Department of Energy researchers and the interested public.

OSTI accelerates the discovery of knowledge!

energy r d investments
Energy R&D Investments
  • The U.S. invests approximately $8.5 billion (USD) in energy-related Research & Development annually.
  • OSTI collects, preserves, disseminates, and leverages the scientific and technical information resources resulting from this investment.
osti s strategies for accomplishing its mission include
OSTI’s strategies for accomplishing its mission include:
  • Collaborations within the Department of Energy to develop and maintain an efficient, state-of-the-art access and delivery system.
  • Partnerships with other organizations to facilitate national and international cooperation and information exchange.
osti s strategies continued
OSTI’s strategies, continued
  • Development, delivery, and maintenance of information products and services for a variety of users.
  • Preservation of scientific and technical information, in tangible copies or electronically, as appropriate.
  • Acceleration of the diffusion of knowledge to advance scientific discovery.
osti statistics
OSTI Statistics:

In FY 2006, there were 44 million transactions by individuals accessing OSTI resources (doubling in the past 2 years)

Approximately 4.1 million full-text documents were downloaded from OSTI via the Web, free of charge to users.

osti collaborations
OSTI Collaborations
  • OSTI works with the Department of Energy’s National Laboratories, as well as with energy researchers at universities, colleges, and other research institutions.
  • OSTI tracks approximately 10,000 current research projects funded by the Department of Energy per year.
  • OSTI receives about 12,000 technical research reports per year.
  • OSTI uses an input system which allows researchers or administrative personnel to directly submit bibliographic data and/or upload electronic files for use in our databases.
osti partnerships
OSTI Partnerships
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) / International Nuclear Information System (INIS) – since 1970.
  • Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDE) – since 1987.
  • International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI)
  • Various partnerships with other U.S. government agencies to provide access to science information.

  • Gateway to science information provided by U.S. government agencies.
  • Ability to simultaneously search databases from DOE/OSTI, National Library of Medicine (PubMed), National Agriculture Library (AGRICOLA), NASA, U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, and others.
  • Results from all databases are combined and then ranked accordingly to relevance.
e print network and science conference proceedings
E-Print Network andScience Conference Proceedings
  • E-Print Network ( single query searching of e-print manuscripts, scholarly papers, and other scientific documents residing on web sites, as well as a deep web search across major e-print databases.
  • Science Conference Proceedings ( also provides a deep web search of conference papers and proceedings across various fields of science and technology.
osti preservation
OSTI Preservation
  • Historical role was preservation of paper documents
  • OSTI’s collection consists of over 850,000 records
  • About 115,000 paper documents have been digitized, and another 38,000 reports formerly in microfiche format
