Separate Data explorer

  • logging in allows saved searches & alerts for new research
  • OSTI allows researchers to connect their ORCID ID
  • allows some normal database syntax like quotations: “nuclear reactor”
  • but uses something called “semantic search” meaning searching for wind energy will also search for wind turbines and geothermal energy 
  • boolean operators (AND OR NOT) are IGNORED, unless you use the Advanced Search, which does not have a dedicated page
  • open Advanced Search using the green arrow icon in the search bar
