Scitopia.org was a search portal developed in collaboration by a number of science and technology societies and government information sources. Scitopia.org searched the entire electronic libraries of these societies and government sources. As of November 2012, this tool has been discontinued, as an announcements states on the site homepage.
Participating societies include IEEE, SPIE, and ASME. Government sources include the USPTO, EPO, and other U. S. government-supported research collections. A complete list of available sources is available here. (See Advanced search tab.)
Use of the Scitopia.org search portal is free. Search results include links to society websites for document purchase and download. Scitopia.org also provides the ability to export search results in a limited number of formats. Search alerts can be setup following free registration.
