Graduate Student Requirements

All graduate students supported by Ames Laboratory funding are required to provide the Laboratory with an electronic copy of their thesis/dissertation so that it can be submitted to the Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI).   The process is as follows:

XML

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a set of rules for encoding documents in machine-readable form.  XML's design goals emphasize simplicity, generality, and usability over the Internet.  It is a textual data format with strong support for the languages of the world. Although the design of XML focuses on documents, it is widely used for the representation of arbitrary data structures, for example in web services.  As of 2009, hundreds of XML-based languages have been developed, and XML-based formats have become the default for most office-productivity tools, including Microsoft Office (Office Open XML), OpenOffice.org (OpenDocument), and Apple's iWork.

ASCII

The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) (pronounced /ˈæski/ ASS-kee) is a character-encoding scheme based on the ordering of the English alphabet. ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many more characters than did ASCII.

Base64

Base64 is a group of similar encoding schemes that represent binary data in an ASCII string format by translating it into a radix-64 representation (i.e., represent one symbol that can have 256 different values by using groups of symbols that can have only 64 values). The Base64 term originates from a specific MIME content transfer encoding.  Base64 encoding schemes are commonly used when there is a need to encode binary data that needs be stored and transferred over media that are designed to deal with textual data. This is to ensure that the data remains intact without modification during transport. Base64 is used commonly in a number of applications including email via MIME, and storing complex data in XML.

MIME

Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) is an Internet standard that extends the format of e-mail to support:

  • Text in character sets other than ASCII
  • Non-text (i.e. binary) attachments
  • Message bodies with multiple parts
  • Header information in non-ASCII character sets

Virtually all human-written Internet e-mail and a fairly large proportion of automated e-mail is transmitted in MIME format. MIME's use, however, has grown beyond describing the content of e-mail to describing content type in general, including for the web.
