The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
As the largest funder of physical sciences research, the DOE Office of Science (SC) is actively engaged in the public access topic and supports continued efforts to share DOE’s unclassified R&D results as broadly as possible. At the request of SC Director Bill Brinkman, OSTI is developing a new public access resource as a proof-of-concept portal.
PAGES (Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science) is a web-based portal that will ensure that scholarly publications, i.e., final accepted manuscripts or peer-reviewed journal articles resulting from DOE research funding, are publicly accessible and searchable at no charge to readers. PAGES is designed to take advantage of the public access efforts of publishers by linking to DOE articles they make publicly accessible. For each such article, there is a single version of record, and it is hosted by the publisher. Thus, PAGES will avoid duplicating the public access efforts of publishers.
When DOE articles are not made publicly accessible by publishers, PAGES will focus on accepted manuscripts. Specifically, after an administrative interval (to be determined), it will link to publicly accessible manuscripts hosted by institutional repositories. For those instances where free public access is offered neither by a publisher nor by an institutional repository, DOE OSTI will host the accepted manuscript and link to it after an administrative period.
Regardless of where DOE-sponsored articles or accepted manuscripts are hosted, PAGES will enable readers to search them all via a single search box using centralized metadata provided by DOE-funded authors and a centralized index of full text. The process and tool that DOE authors will use are the same process and tool they have long used to submit metadata for technical reports, conference papers, and other forms of scientific and technical information (STI), including citations for published journal articles.
PAGES is an innovative and economical solution for public access because it takes advantage of existing DOE tools and infrastructure, such as the E-Link metadata submission system and the network of STI managers and technical information officers at Labs, site offices, and procurement offices – known collectively as the Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP). These roles and responsibilities are outlined in the DOE directive DOE O 241.1B, “Scientific and Technical Information Management.”
OSTI believes that, in this way, DOE can meet the goals of public access effectively via a “hybrid” approach. The hybrid nature of the approach means that the centralized metadata and the rich index of full text power a sophisticated centralized search engine, while the actual full text itself remains distributed across the institutions and publishers who host it. In an electronic age, this is a proven model, and, in our opinion, one that is most compatible with the sometimes competing interests of public access, publisher viability, and the quality of peer review. Specifically, the PAGES model will allow participating publishers to host articles for free on their websites rather than being displayed within the PAGES interface. This approach fulfills public access expectations, while ameliorating publishers’ concerns about diminished traffic and visibility. All the while, PAGES ensures permanent public access by building a dark archive of accepted manuscripts for any publisher-hosted article or institution-hosted manuscript that is ever removed from public access.
