OSTI Introduces New Search Tool for Researchers

DOE researchers can now access approximately four million bibliographic records and over 140,000 full-text documents spanning more than six decades of DOE research through the Science Research Connection (SRC) at SRC was developed by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) exclusively for the DOE community and is intended for scientists and information specialists as a way to enhance research on behalf of DOE. SRC requires registration, and access is free of charge.

Many documents that before had limited accessibility are now available electronically. Additions to the collection will continue as documents only available in hard copy are scanned and electronically disseminated.

Special features include search result manipulation, save search capability, alerts, shopping cart, field sorting and downloadable bibliographic data to EndNote. Basic search is available, as well as sophisticated search options including wild card, proximity, full text, author and taxonomy.

To register, visit and fill out the registration form. After you submit the form, you will receive an email notification that your registration has been submitted. Once your registration has been processed and approved, you will receive a second email notification.

SRC will continue to be enhanced and upgraded in the months ahead.
