Materials Research Database (ProQuest)
- Coverage Dates: 1960-
- Update Frequency: Ongoing
- Audience: Research, Students
CSA Materials Research Database comprises the following databases:
- Aluminium Industry Abstracts
- Ceramic Abstracts/World Ceramics Abstracts
- Copper Data Center
- Corrosion Abstracts
- Engineered Materials Abstracts
- Materials Business File
Materials Research Database covers publications related to materials science, metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, and engineering composites. Topics covered include raw materials, processing, refining, end uses, performance, and recycling, as well as business aspects of materials science. Databases begin in the 1960s, 1970s or 1980s; select older references are included. Updates are monthly, with about 100,000-125,000 records added annually. Records are bibliographic, including indexing and abstracts (if available), but not full text online.
Sources covered include 3,469 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade publications, patents, books, and press releases. Within METADEX, about 15% of the covered sources are designated "core" and are indexed cover to cover; the remaining 85% are designated "priority" (over 50% indexed) or "selective" (less than 50% indexed). A journal may be "core" within one database in the group, but "selective" in other databases.
