New OSTIblog by Dr. Jeffrey Salmon, The Grand Compromise of U.S. Public Access Programs: Going Green http://www.osti.gov/o3D #publicaccess

The process of moving federally-funded R&D results from the lab to the public takes many forms…. Scholarly publications, however, undergo more rigor in the publication process, and there are naturally higher costs…. The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and U.S. federal agencies appreciate the essential value and role of publishing and peer review (and their attendant costs). At the same time, agencies are keen to focus their research funding on research. Our green open access (OA) models are a proven, workable solution that achieves the objectives of public access while taking into account the multiplicity of interests involved in the scientific enterprise.

Extending the Reach and Impact of Department of Energy Research Results
Introduction

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), a unit of the Office of Science, fulfills agency-wide responsibilities to collect, preserve, and disseminate scientific and technical information (STI) emanating from DOE research and development (R&D) activities.  The OSTI mission is to advance science and sustain technological creativity by making R&D findings available and useful to DOE researchers and the public.

OSTI provides access to scientific and technical information related to DOE missions through web-based searchable databases, offering ever-expanding sources of R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the science-attentive public.  The OSTI Catalogue of Collections includes DOE science resources, as well as U.S. federal and global science information.
