"The Science Accelerator empowers you to search, via a single query, important information resources of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) scientific and technical information. These resources contain the results of DOE research and development (R&D) projects and programs, descriptions of R&D projects under way or recently completed, major R&D accomplishments, and recent research of interest to DOE. The Science Accelerator can be used to search:

  • Electronic full-text research reports (including DOE scientific and technical information)
  • Energy citations (millions of them, going back to the Manhattan Project era)
  • Ongoing research project summaries (what's happening right now in DOE science research)
  • Wonderful DOE accomplishments in science
  • E-prints (journal article pre-publication drafts, scholarly papers, and more)
  • Proceedings and papers from science conferences
  • More resources"
