DOepatents Frequently Asked Questions http://t.osti.gov/iuv
 
·         Why was this database developed and by whom?
·         How is this collection different than the one at the United States Patent and Trademark Office?
·         What are the criteria for including patent records in this collection? How do you determine these patents were sponsored by DOE?
·         How many patents are in this collection? Does the collection include all of DOE's patents?
·         Does this collection include the full text for each patent?
·         What time frame is covered by DOepatents?
·         How often is this collection and Web site updated?
·         Does the U.S. Government have exclusive rights to these inventions?
·         What is OSTI?
·         Where can I find information about doing business with DOE?
·         How can I find additional information on the patenting process?
·         Where can I find patents that are not related to DOE?
 
The answers to these questions can be found at DOepatentshttp://t.osti.gov/iuv.

Why Is DOE PAGES(Beta) Called “Beta”?

When launched in August 2014, DOE PAGES(Beta) http://www.osti.gov/pages/ offered a preliminary collection of accepted manuscripts and journal articles to allow stakeholders internal and external to DOE to begin using PAGES before the initial twelve-month administrative period concludes.  This “beta” version of DOE PAGES contains a selection of journal articles and accepted manuscripts intended to demonstrate DOE PAGES’ functionality and eventual expanded content.  This initial collection is a combination of journal article records previously submitted to OSTI and records made available by the publisher consortium, CHORUS. 

Over the next year, metadata and links to articles and accepted manuscripts will be added as they are submitted to OSTI, with anticipated annual growth of 20,000-30,000 publicly-accessible articles and manuscripts.  Following broader implementation of processes for ongoing content growth and submission, the beta version of DOE PAGES will transition to a full release.  

Meanwhile, public consultation is a key part of OSTI’s implementation of DOE PAGES.  Throughout the beta period and beyond, feedback about DOE PAGES(Beta) is welcomed and may be provided to pagesfeedback@osti.gov.

ScienceCinema Feature Video:  ATHENA, the Desktop Human "Body" http://t.osti.gov/3YD

Creating surrogate human organs, coupled with insights from highly sensitive mass spectrometry technologies, a new project is on the brink of revolutionizing the way we screen new drugs and toxic agents. ATHENA, the Advanced Tissue-engineered Human Ectypal Network Analyzer project team, is developing four human organ constructs - liver, heart, lung and kidney - that are based on a significantly miniaturized platform. Each organ component will be about the size of a smartphone screen, and the whole ATHENA "body" of interconnected organs would fit neatly on a desk. "By developing this 'homo minutus,' we are stepping beyond the need for animal or Petri dish testing: There are huge benefits in developing drug and toxicity analysis systems that can mimic the response of actual human organs," said Rashi Iyer, a senior scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the lead laboratory on the five-year, $19 million multi-institutional effort. The project is supported by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). Some 40 percent of pharmaceuticals fail their clinical trials, Iyer noted, and there are thousands of chemicals whose effects on humans are simply unknown. Providing a realistic, cost-effective and rapid screening system such as ATHENA with high-throughput capabilities could provide major benefits to the medical field, screening more accurately and offering a greater chance of clinical trial success.  Find out more here:  http://t.osti.gov/3aD

DOE Science Showcase - Clean Coal http://t.osti.gov/31u

DOE continues to play a leadership role in the development of clean coal technologies with a focus on carbon capture and storage as a critical component to an energy-rich, environmentally sound energy economy. The Clean Coal Research Program – administered by DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and implemented by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) – is designed to enhance our energy security and reduce environmental concerns over the future use of coal by developing a portfolio of cutting-edge clean coal technologies.  Learn more about DOE’s clean coal research at the latest DOE Science Showcase http://t.osti.gov/31u.

Story
Tagline
U.S. Department of Energy OSTI has been making government R&D results transparent since 1947.
Introduction
The Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) produces a variety of databases making U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) scientific and technical information freely accessible to the public. OSTI also has created a number of federated search tools to accelerate access to scientific and technical information from beyond DOE.


OSTI Databases and Search Tools:

  • SciTech Connect -- Find DOE R&D citations and full-text documents, plus other energy related citations of interest to DOE.
  • DOE PAGES(Beta) -- DOE Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science(Beta): a portal to journal articles and accepted manuscripts resulting from DOE-funded research that will be made publicly available at no cost not more than twelve months after publication.
  • DOE R&D Accomplishments – Find information about the outcomes of past DOE R&D.
  • DOepatents – Find patents resulting from DOE-sponsored research and development.
  • E-print Network – Find e-prints in basic and applied sciences..
  • ScienceCinema – Find scientific videos highlighting research and development sponsored by DOE.
  • DOE Data Explorer – Find scientific research data generated in the course of DOE-sponsored research in various science disciplines.
  • Energy Science and Technology Software Center – Find DOE-funded scientific and technical software developed by the national laboratories, other facilities and DOE contractors.
  • National Library of Energy -- Find and access information from across the DOE complex nationwide, without knowing DOE's organizational structure.
