WorldWideScience.org lets users search for science around the world in a matter of seconds.  First deployed in 2008, this transformational technology unearths content that under normal circumstances would remain only available to users searching a database specifically.  And if that’s not enough, scientists and researchers can search in their own language for cutting-edge information from other countries and have it translated back into their own language.  Of course, WorldWideScience.org uses the Explorit Everywhere! Multilingual search feature by Deep Web Technologies.

Now, after 6 years of fabulous press and high useage, OSTI has decided to shake things up.  They are making WorldWideScience.org BETTER.  Eh?  How’s that, you say?

I feel blue…
When an organization able to make a bright purple look authoritative says it’s time to make a World Wide Science   Main View   Search Results for Full Text  climate changechange, we listen. WorldWideScience.org now sports a progressive, modern look reflective of the digital age. It’s an impressive new look and feel.

My country tis of thee…
For researchers looking for results from a specific country, or to explore and discover results by country, we have good news!  WorldWideScience.org now has a country cluster, grouping results from specific countries for easier viewing.

Hello, Salut, Hola and Hallo
Using our new Explorit Everywhere! Multilingual architecture, the updated language search and translation of WorldWideScience.org is faster and more thorough than before.  Users simply select their query language from the 10 language options and search!

The folks at OSTI have more up their sleeve, so don’t be surprised if you hear more good news in the coming months!
