Papers from the annual conferences of the International Society of Rock Mechanics (ISRM) are now available in OnePetro. Content from the US Dept. of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has been indexed into OnePetro. When NETL content is found, an Open Access link direct customers to the PDF available at no charge on the NETL site.
The International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) included over 2300 papers from its annual conferences in OnePetro starting in October 2010. ISRM was founded in Salzburg in 1962 and focuses on the field of Rock Mechanics. It supports all studies relative to the physical and mechanical behavior of rocks and rock masses as well as the applications of this knowledge for the better understanding of geological processes and in the fields of Engineering. ISRM is a non-profit international scientific association with over 5,000 members and 46 National Groups.
In January 2011, The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) national laboratory system, made available on OnePetro access to their repository of nearly four decades of research supported by the Office of Fossil Energy’s Oil and Natural Gas Program. This database largely evolved from a recommendation made by the Federal advisory committees that counsel the Energy Secretary on the Department’s Ultra-Deepwater and Unconventional Natural Gas and Other Petroleum Resources Research Program.
The NETL database portal provides access to content from dozens of CDs and DVDs related to oil and natural gas research that FE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory has published over the years. OnePetro now provides open access links to these reports, data sets, and project summaries from ongoing research. The NETL database currently includes more than 9,000 files and will be expanded in the future to include geographical information system capabilities that will allow visualization of data.
