    I am pleased to announce the publication of my review and critique of
the Energy Citations Database:

The Energy Citations Database  (ECD)

                [ ]

  is a bibliographic database developed by the Office of Scientific and
Technical Information (OSTI) of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to
improve access to energy and energy-related scientific and technical
information produced or funded by DOE or its predecessor agencies, the
Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and the Energy Research and Development
Administration (ERDA). ECD is made available by OSTI in partnership with
the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) through GPO Access. It was
launched in October 2001 and presently contains approximately 2 million
records; it is currently updated weekly.

The Energy Citations Database (ECD) provides full bibliographic records
to the literature of disciplines of interest to the U.S. Department of
Energy, notably chemistry, physics, materials, environmental science,
geology, engineering, mathematics, climatology, oceanography, computer
science, and related disciplines. ECD provides citations to books,
conference proceedings and papers, dissertations and theses, government
documents, journal articles, patents and patent applications, software
manuals, as well as the report literature. A significant number of ECD
records also include abstracts. ECD provides access to public
bibliographic records from a variety of DOE, AEC, or ERDA sources, for
the period beginning in 1948.

    Access to the article is also available to subscribers of _The
