(11/20/2003) - To make EPA’s quality science available to researchers and all citizens, the EPA Science Inventory was launched on Nov. 18th for public access. The Science Inventory, managed by EPA’s Office of Research and Development, is a searchable, Agency-wide database of 4,000 scientific and technical work products. Researchers at colleges and universities, state and local government officials, industry executives, students, attorneys – anyone with a use for EPA research – can now directly access EPA’s science. The Science Inventory was previously used within EPA to coordinate scientific work; this is the first time it will be publicly available. Database records provide information such as project descriptions (abstracts), contacts for additional information and electronic links to final reports and related research. Users can search by keyword or within nine cross-cutting science topics: aging initiative, contaminated sediments, ecological assessment tools, genomics, tribal science, children’s health, cumulative risk, environmental justice and non-indigenous species. The Science Inventory is available at: .
