Overview

The Materials Science & Engineering Database is a purpose built resource to meet the needs of professionals, students, faculty, and researchers. An interdisciplinary resource combining full-text sources and expert indexing of global literature, this database offers its users the tools and the content to stay current of the latest research in the field, perform comprehensive literature reviews, or develop strong baseline knowledge for new researchers.

Featuring content from 1962 to present, the database supports materials science research, covering topics such as metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, and biomaterials and dealing with areas such as corrosion, molding and casting, treatment, recycling, testing, finishing, welding, and forming. To support engineering research, the database provides easy access to millions of bibliographic abstracts for the widest and deepest coverage of new technologies and engineering research, including civil, mechanical, environmental, earthquake, mechanical, and transportation. Sources go beyond scholarly journals to include grey literature including patents, conference proceedings, government reports, and more to provide the researcher with the widest awareness and discovery of developments in the field.
