Materials Science & Engineering Research: Articles / Databases
The databases below will lead you to journal articles on topics in materials science and engineering.
Use the databases listed below to search for and find articles on topics in materials design and innovation. The Annual Review provides online versions of review articles in materials science and engineering. Listed below that are major multidisciplinary databases followed by engineering-focused databases and then major e-journal packages that can be searched like databases. There will be some overlap in these databases, but they will also all have unique materials in them.
Annual Review of Materials Research
- The Annual Review of Materials Research covers the significant developments in the field of materials research, including original methodologies, materials phenomena, material systems, and special keynote topics.
