This extensive data collection contains the following resources: Elemental Data Index | Periodic Table: Atomic Properties of the Elements | Physical Constants | Atomic Spectroscopy Data | Molecular Spectroscopy Data | Atomic and Molecular Data | X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Data | Radiation Dosimetry Data | Nuclear Physics Data | Condensed Matter Physics Data | Other NIST Data
Database of U.S. Government sponsored technical reports
OSTI.GOV is the primary search tool for Department of Energy (DOE) funded science, technology, and engineering research and development (R&D) results. The OSTI.GOV search tool offers access to an array of R&D results including resource types such as journal articles, technical reports, data, software, patents, conference papers, and more.
Other OSTI tools:
- DOE Public Access Gateway for Science and Energy (PAGES) (contains journal articles and accepted manuscripts)
- DOE Data Explorer (research data)
- DOE Patents (patent information)
NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) provides access to aerospace-related citations, full-text online documents, images, and videos. The types of information included are: conference papers, journal articles, meeting papers, patents, research reports, images, movies, and technical videos – scientific and technical information (STI) created or funded by NASA.
PubMed® comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
PubDefense (peer-reviewed scholarly publications); technical reports; grant awards; budget data; innovation marketplace; corporate source authority system search; thesaurus; conference proceedings
The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a resource for learning about toxic chemical releases and pollution prevention activities reported by industrial and federal facilities.
PubChem is an open chemistry database at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). “Open” means that you can put your scientific data in PubChem and that others may use it. Since the launch in 2004, PubChem has become a key chemical information resource for scientists, students, and the general public.
PubChem mostly contains small molecules, but also larger molecules such as nucleotides, carbohydrates, lipids, peptides, and chemically-modified macromolecules. PubChem collects information on chemical structures, identifiers, chemical and physical properties, biological activities, patents, health, safety, toxicity data, and many others.
