What is STI?
STI (scientific and technical information) is defined as a paper, abstract, journal article, presentation, etc. that contains and delivers the results (the analyses of the data, facts, and resulting conclusions) of basic and applied scientific, technical and related engineering research and development.
The following links provide resources for users who would like to find more information from NASA and beyond.
STI Program Resources
- The NASA STI Repository (NTRS) provides access to NASA metadata records, 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. View search tips for the STI Repository.
- The Research Access initiative increases public access to scientific publications and digital scientific data resulting from NASA-funded research.
- PubSpace is the NASA publication repository that collects copies of peer-reviewed publications and associated data from NASA-funded authors and co-authors (both civil servant and non-civil servant).
- NASA’s Data Portal is a catalog of datasets generated via NASA-sponsored research to enable researchers to locate and cite datasets and to link those datasets to the scientific literature.
