Research Resource: searches over 60 databases and over 2200 selected websites from 15 federal agencies, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information including research and development results. is governed by the interagency Alliance is a gateway to government science information and research results. Currently in its fifth generation, provides a search of over 60 scientific databases and 200 million pages of science information with just one query, and is a gateway to over 2200 scientific Websites (see fact sheet). is an interagency initiative of 19 U.S. government science organizations within 15 Federal Agencies. These agencies form the voluntary Alliance which governs 5.0 provides the ultimate science search through a variety of features and abilities, including:

  • Accessing over 55 databases and 200 million pages of science information via one query
  • Clustering of results by subtopics, authors, or dates to help you target your search
  • Wikipedia results related to your search terms
  • Eureka News results related to your search terms
  • Mark & send option for emailing results to friends and colleagues
  • Download capabilities in RIS
  • Enhanced information related to your real-time search
  • Aggregated Science News Feed, also available on Twitter
  • Updated Alerts service

The content for is contributed by participating agencies committed to serving the information needs of the science-attentive citizen, including science professionals, students and teachers, and the business community.

Many of these agencies are members of CENDI, which provides administrative support and coordination for and the Alliance were formed in response to the April 2001 workshop, “Strengthening the Public Information Infrastructure for Science.”

I tried the search:  “ehlers-danlos syndrome” pain fatigue

Below are sample screenshots of how the results are helpfully organized, first the original view, and then after the top topics are expanded:

  1. painwithdignity

    This is a good resource….and for those who suffer from EDS, here is just one link I found from doing a simple search for “Chronic Pain” on the site:

    Lo and Behold, People with Hypermobility type EDS have HYPERALGESIA! Note: the EDS Disease is essentially the source of the HYPERALGESIA. That is a truth that I have seen in practice. But there are too many Doctors and others who try to blame all hyperalgesia on opioid medication. The truth is that diseases with chronic pain cause hyperalgesia far more commonly than opioids cause hyperalgesia.

    But the correlation of EDS-Hypermobility type and hyperalgesia is just one example of the information that may be gotten through So read on all of you and share the knowledge that you gain.
