By: , Posted on: November 30, 2015

We are thrilled to announce that the Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering is now live on ScienceDirect!

material science reference module ipad• Reference Modules combine thousands of encyclopedic and comprehensive articles from Elsevier’s world-leading reference works along with new and exclusively-written articles to create one innovative and efficient resource

• The Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering is hosted on ScienceDirect so that you can easily transfer from one subdiscipline to another in an efficient and effective manner, essential in today’s competitive interdisciplinary scientific world

• Content is continuously reviewed and updated and then date stamped. New articles are commissioned where needed to extend previous reference works or cover entirely new areas of research so you will always be ahead of the game

• Articles are designed to form the foundation of new discoveries and publications to advance outcomes and achieve goals

• Includes dynamic links to relevant journal articles and book chapters on ScienceDirect for additional information and further research

• It has an intuitive subject hierarchy designed by the module’s expert editorial board that makes it easy to navigate the subject

Materials Science

The highly interdisciplinary field of materials science examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in particular have yielded major innovations in this area, such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. Elsevier’s authoritative content in this area ranges from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationships between the structure of materials and their properties. Our journals (including Materials Today), books, and eBooks help researchers stay abreast of developments in this swiftly advancing field, coving major sub-disciplines like energy and power; metals and alloys; ceramics; composite materials; polymer science and biomaterials; interdisciplinary materials science; and structural materials.
