OSTI Partners with Internet Archive

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) recently partnered with the Internet Archive (www.archive.org) to ensure uninterrupted access to more than 1 million online research papers from the E-print Network (www.osti.gov/eprints). This was achieved through the Internet Archive’s Web-archiving service, Archive-It, a Web-based application that enables partners to harvest, manage, search, and preserve collections of archived Web pages and born-digital content. This collection is hosted by the Internet Archive and can be viewed at www.archiveit.org with free and permanent access to the public.

The DOE E-print Network is the largest collection that a federal institution has undertaken in an ongoing effort to preserve its own documents and history through Archive-It. 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 circulate electronically to facilitate peer exchange and scientific advancement.

There are currently more than 25,000 scientific Web sites accessible via the DOE OSTI E-print Network. Much of the information on these Web sites could change at a moment’s notice. Through archiving periodic snapshots of the nation’s scientific and technical information, the Internet Archive/OSTI partnership will ensure long-term stability of the E-print Network and other research collections important to DOE.
