    Scientific and Technical Information (STI)

    Information products deemed by the originator to be useful beyond the originating site (i.e., intended to be published or disseminated), in any format or medium, which contain findings and technological innovations resulting from research and development (R&D) efforts and scientific and technological work of scientists, researchers, and engineers, whether they are federal employees, contractors, or financial-assistance recipients.
