ProQuest Materials Science Collection
A specialized materials science research database comprised of two primary elements:
This database provides a unique research solution for everything from raw materials and refining through processing, welding and fabrication to end uses, corrosion, performance and recycling for all metals, alloys, polymers, ceramics and composites.
Abstracts in ProQuest Materials Science Collection
The available full text is supplemented by a much wider range of abstracts for literature in materials science related disciplines to ensure researchers have the maximum opportunity to discover literature for their search queries.
ProQuest editors assign index terms to describe the documents in journals, books, maps and reports.
Beyond the mainstream peer reviewed journals in this field this resource provides abstracts of hard-to-get, low circulation grey literature publications, often with links back to the full text (typically open access repositories). The database also includes good coverage of international content including non English language content.
Several topic specific thesauri are maintained and developed by ProQuest editorial teams allowing researchers to find subject terms to narrow or broaden their search. Subjects are also commonly known as descriptors, controlled vocabulary, and sometimes classification terms.
Databases in ProQuest Materials Science Collection
ProQuest Materials Science Collection strives to meet the current requirements of the materials science research community and to anticipate future needs. Selection of resources is a continuous process affected by the changing curriculum as well as ensuring we are meeting the needs of the researcher.
