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.

Major Multidisciplinary Databases

  • Web of Science
    One-pass searching of Web of Science citation indexes, BIOSIS Citation Index, Derwent Innovations Index, MEDLINE and more. More Info
  • SciFinder
    Major research tool for chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials-related research. It provides access to the literature in these fields as well as to reactions, properties, spectra, and regulatory information and data.
  • Scopus
    Large, multidisciplinary abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. More Info
  • ScienceDirect
    Full-text of all Elsevier published journals. More Info
  • Nature Journals
