|Materials Research Database with METADEX|
Internet-delivered database. There are three ways to connect:
|Description:||Consists of 11 leading materials science
databases, with specialist content on materials science, metallurgy,
ceramics, polymers, and composites used in engineering applications.
The collection provides coverage on materials processes, both applied
and theoretical, including welding and joining, heat treatment and thermal
When searching any of these databases, three additional databases are searched simultaneously: MicroPatent Materials Patents (containing abstracts of U.S., European, and Patent Cooperation Treaty patents relating to materials science), Web Resources Database (indexed Web sites in materials science), and Recent References (a current-citation database).
The 11 databases are:
|Coverage:||1972- (Aluminum Industry Abstracts); 1975- (Ceramic Abstracts/World Ceramics Abstracts); 1965- (Copper Data Center Database); 1980- (Corrosion Abstracts); 1986- (Engineered Materials); 1985- (Materials Business File); 1981- (Mechanical Engineering Abstracts); 1966- (METADEX); 1996- (MicroPatent Materials Patents); 1967- (WELDASEARCH)|
|Updated:||monthly (except for Corrosion Abstracts, which is updated bimonthly)|
|Journals:||Serials Source Lists are available for Engineered Materials Abstracts; Materials Business File; Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts; and METADEX.|
|Alerts:||Click on “Alerts” in the “Search Tools” area to set up a personal profile. You can click on “Alerts” above a result set to save it. A saved “Alert” will be used to automatically search your selected databases for new content every week.|
