Materials Horizons from the Royal Society of Chemistry will feature research spanning multiple disciplines at the cutting-edge interface of materials science with chemistry, physics, biology and engineering. It is aiming for fast publication of top class materials research.
The journal will open for submissions in April 2013 and the first issue will be published in late 2013. Free access will be given to 2014 and 2015 content.continue reading
We have free access to the new journal series ICE Science throughout 2012.
This collection aims to deliver a holistic overview in the areas of materials science, biomaterials, nanotechnology, energy and green chemistry inspiring fresh thinking in how breakthrough research can be practically applied.

Thomson Reuters (owners of Web of Science) have produced a global research report focusing on materials science & technology. It looks at what are currently the hot topics being cited, the relative influence of citations from different countries and includes interviews with highly cited authors.
The report and more information can be found at http://researchanalytics.thomsonreuters.com/grr/grr-matscience/continue reading
Free trial of Springer Materials
SpringerMaterials is a unique resource of high-level, critically acclaimed data in all areas of chemistry, physical sciences and materials science on subjects such as electronic structure and transport, magnetism, crystallography, thermodynamics and more. It uses Landolt Bornstein data. Search features include a Google-like search engine, navigation via subject area & periodic table, deep indexing and intelligent content retrieval.
We also have trial access to the Springer E-book collections at www.SpringerLink.com on a wide range of science and engineering topics.
Access to both collections is by IP address on campus only. Please let us know if you have any comments about the material on trial by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org reading
