The NTIS website and supporting ordering systems are undergoing a major upgrade from 8PM on September 25th through approximately October 6. During that time, much of the functionality, including subscription and product ordering, shipping, etc., will not be available. You may call NTIS at 1-800-553-6847 or (703) 605-6000 to place an order but you should expect delayed shipment. Please do NOT include credit card numbers in any email you might send NTIS.
Documents in the NTIS Technical Reports collection are the results of federally funded research. They are directly submitted to or collected by NTIS from Federal agencies for permanent accessibility to industry, academia and the public.  Before purchasing from NTIS, you may want to check for free access from (1) the issuing organization's website; (2) the U.S. Government Printing Office's Federal Digital System website http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys; (3) the federal government Internet portal USA.gov; or (4) a web search conducted using a commercial search engine such as http://www.google.com.

Energy Science and Technology Database

What is the Energy Science and Technology Database?

The Energy Science and Technology Database (EDB) is a multidisciplinary file containing worldwide references to basic and applied scientific and technical research literature. The information is collected for use by government managers, researchers at the national laboratories, and other research efforts sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, and the results of this research are transferred to the public. Abstracts are included for records from 1976 to the present. The EDB also contains the Nuclear Science Abstracts which is a comprehensive abstract and index collection to the international nuclear science and technology literature for the period 1948 through 1976. Included are scientific and technical reports of the US Atomic Energy Commission, US Energy Research and Development Administration and its contractors, other agencies, universities, and industrial and research organizations. Approximately 25% of the records in the file contain abstracts. Nuclear Science Abstracts contains over 900,000 bibliographic records. The entire Energy Science & Technology Database contains over 3 million bibliographic records.

 

Who Should Access the Energy Science and Technology Database and Why?

Anyone needing access to the world's most comprehensive source of worldwide energy related information. It also contains a comprehensive collection of nuclear research, beginning with the Manhattan project. Use this database to:

  • Obtain results of the latest energy research efforts.
  • Access subject specific information on energy sources, use, and conservation; environmental effects; waste processing and disposal; and regulatory consideration, as well as basic scientific studies.
  • Review energy information from a wide variety of sources, including journal literature, conference, patents, books, monographs, theses, and engineering and software materials.
  • Access historical records of the US Atomic Energy Commission, and US Energy Research and Development Administration.
  • Review subject specific information on nuclear science from a wide variety of sources, including books, conference proceedings, papers, patents, dissertations, engineering drawings, and journal literature.
