NASA STI Program and NTRS Continues On

November 6th, 2014

The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program Office announces the closure of the contractor-operated NASA Center for AeroSpace Information (CASI) facilities in Hanover, MD, and Hampton, VA, effective for operational work on  December 15,  2014.    Under the auspices of the NASA STI Program, CASI served the Agency for several decades by collecting, organizing, disseminating, and preserving NASA’s scientific and technical information.  In recent years the move from print-based to digital-based collection and storage of content has diminished the need for an offsite processing facility.

Although the chapter is closing for CASI, its legacy and the services it performed are transitioning to contract services at the NASA Langley Research Center.  As such, customers will continue to have access to the same products and services to which they have been accustomed.

Mastering the Art of Scientific Publication in 2014

October 29th, 2014

While the electronic age has made the publication process easier and quicker, optimizing the structure of a scientific paper requires a certain degree of skill and proficiency. Editors from the American Chemistry Society (ACS) journals put together a special publication on this topic. This issue draws together in one place these editorials that summarize the key steps involved in writing an effective paper, journal submission, review processes, and post-publication efforts.
