The Department of Energy has announced the launch of
Science.gov 2.0, an online database of over 47 million
pages of government R&D results.
The site pools science and technology information throughout
federal organizations and allows users to search across 30
databases and 1,700 websites — providing access to the
“deep web” of the Internet — such as research databases,
as well as more topical material.
“Using a metasearch technology, Science.gov 2.0 brings the
30 largest of these databases together and makes them
searchable via a single query,” said DoE.
It said the site is hosted by its Office of Scientific and
Technical Information and was made possible through
collaboration with the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce,
Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services and
Interior, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency,
the Government Printing Office, the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration, and the National Science
Foundation, with support from the National Archives and
