DOE Launches New Database: SciTech Connect

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 10, 2013

Via Tim Byrne/DOE: “The Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) has launched a new database product called SciTech Connect. SciTech Connect consolidates the contents of OSTI’s Information Bridge and Energy Citations Database, and will gradually replace these products. SciTech Connect employs an innovative semantic search tool enabling users to retrieve more relevant information. Other features include faceting, in-document search, word clouds, and personalization. SciTech Connect’s semantic search technique is known as keyword-to-concept mapping. It accepts keyword-based queries and returns concept-mapped queries as in a taxonomy; a search term is mapped to other associated terms, including narrower and related concepts.”
