FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

OSTI using Archive-It for E-Prints

The Energy Department’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) is using the Internet Archive’s Archive-It service to “provide uninterrupted access to more than a million online research papers from OSTI’s E-print Network.”

  • EPrint Network Special Collection
    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).

“Without a way to periodically archive this material, important science content within this ever-growing, ever-changing online, e-print environment could disappear,” said Walter Warnick, director of OSTI.
