Dr. Warnick will present PAGES (Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science), a web-based portal that will ensure that, after an embargo period, scholarly publications sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE) 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, via digital object identifiers (DOIs), to DOE articles they make publicly accessible. Each such article serves as the 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 publicly accessible, PAGES will focus on accepted manuscripts. Specifically, after an embargo period, it will link, via URLs, 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, the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information will host the accepted manuscript and display it after an embargo period. In both of these cases, PAGES will still provide DOI links to publishers’ websites, where articles may be accessed with a subscription or other transaction, thus maintaining a pathway to the Version of Record.
Regardless of where DOE-sponsored articles or accepted manuscripts are hosted, PAGES will enable readers to search them all via a single search box. Among the metadata thus returned by PAGES will be the DOI for the published article once that DOI is posted by the publisher. PAGES will also be integrated with other DOE publicly-accessible R&D information and products, such as the 330,000 technical reports in the DOE Information Bridge.
Walter L. Warnick, Ph.D.
Director, Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI)
U.S. Department of Energy
Since becoming Director of the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) in 1997, Dr. Warnick has championed an aggressive effort to capitalize on technological advances to provide state-of-the-art information tools and services to the DOE community, intergovernmental and international partners, students and the public. During his tenure at OSTI, groundbreaking tools have made DOE information access quicker, cheaper, more convenient, and more complete than ever before.
For example, the DOE Science Accelerator provides one-stop searching of recent R&D results (including thousands of full-text technical reports and over one million e-print documents as well as science conference proceedings), R&D project accomplishments and other science sources.
New technology has been used to improve scientific and technical information management across the entire DOE complex. The Scientific and Technical Information Program, coordinated by OSTI, has successfully transitioned the DOE complex so that R&D results recorded in digital documents remain digital throughout their entire life cycle.
Recognizing that the boundaries of science disciplines do not necessarily coincide with organizational boundaries, Dr. Warnick championed the interagency development of Science.gov, the gateway for R&D results and related government science information, and WorldWideScience.org, its international counterpart.
Dr. Warnick's vision for the future rests on the premise that emerging computing power and fast networks have only just begun to revolutionize scientific communication. "As the nation embarks on a new Science Information Infrastructure, text and communication tools will play a central role in ways not yet imagined," said Dr. Warnick. "But that's what OSTI is all about. As the information technology revolution evolves, we at OSTI will continue to fulfill our mandate to make DOE research information available. We are eager to help shape the future."
In 2005, Dr. Warnick was elected an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow in the Information, Computing, and Communication section "for leadership in the federal scientific information community and for contributions to the conceptualization, development and implementation of innovative programs that significantly advance access to government information."
In April 2004, Dr. Warnick was chosen by the Public Printer of the United States to serve a three-year term on the 15-member Depository Library Council. "These individuals have dedicated their lives to ensuring that every American has access to Government information," said Public Printer Bruce James of the 2004 appointees. Also in 2004 Dr. Warnick was appointed chair of CENDI, an interagency working group of senior Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Managers from 13 U.S. federal agencies. CENDI is committed to addressing science- and technology-based national priorities and strengthening U.S. competitiveness.
In 2001, Dr. Warnick received both the Department of Energy Information Technology Quality Award for Executive Leadership and the government-wide IRMCO (Interagency Resources Management Conference) Individual Award for demonstration of exceptional ability to operate across organizational boundaries to improve the Government's service to its people.
Dr. Warnick obtained a bachelor's degree in engineering science from The Johns Hopkins University, and MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Maryland.
