Science.gov is a gateway to government science information and research results. Currently in its fifth generation, Science.gov provides a search of over 45 scientific databases and 200 million pages of science information with just one query, and is a gateway to over 2100 scientific websites.
Science.gov 5.0 provides the ultimate science search through a variety of features and abilities, including:
Science.gov 5.0 was launched in September 2008 and boasts several new and innovative features. Clustering, the grouping of results into meaningful topics, helps guide patrons to desired information. Science.gov results have also been enhanced by the addition of Wikipedia topics and EurekAlert items related to the search. Additionally, selected results can be emailed to colleagues and friends, and the overall look and feel has been updated.
More recently, enhanced features added include an aggregated Science News feed, also available on Twitter, a Science.gov widget for users' own web pages and an image search. Federal Regulations and Legislative databases have also been added.
