The Office of Communications and Public Affairs (OCPA) has several vehicles to update the public on the latest scientific outcomes of projects funded with support from the Office of Science. Each year, we post more than 2000 research news items as well as an equivalent number of Twitter messages. Our most recent items are featured on our home page. Here you will find searchable archives for Featured Articles, Science Headlines, Science Highlights, and University Research News. You may also search all these datasets simultaneously in our master news archive.
