Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology is an authoritative first reference source for the increasingly broad and multidisciplinary field of materials. It is a newly commissioned, up-to-date reference work from Elsevier Science that will be published in September 2001.


Coverage is comprehensive. Every article in the Encyclopedia has been commissioned and written by an internationally recognised expert and provides a concise overview of a particular aspect of the field. Extensive bibliographies, cross-referencing and indexes enhance the value of the articles and guide the user to the most relevant further reading within the ever-expanding available literature.

Print version

The Encyclopedia comes in an 11-volume set containing around 10,000 pages, 2,200 articles and 5,500 illustrations, including colour. Clothbound and printed on acid free paper, it's produced to the high standards expected of Pergamon reference works and will be an invaluable and lasting addition to any library.

Electronic version

There will also be a powerful electronic version of the Encyclopedia, allowing easier access and cross-referencing through hyperlinking and search tools. For the first time, multimedia features, such as 3-D, animation, movie clips and colour, will be included in a materials encyclopedia.

Online features and functionality:

The Encyclopedia online allows you to locate information in a variety of ways. Whether you prefer to browse a subject area, search for a word or phrase across all of part of the work, or investigate subject areas from outside your field of expertise that the Encyclopedia also covers. Dynamic reference linking will take you from over 30,000 cited references within articles to the source abstract, widening your research rapidly and effectively. Over 11,000 tables, 7,300 figures and 136 color illustrations are delivered sharply and crisply online.

- Extensive browse and search across subject, thematic, alphabetical and author indexes.

- Basic and advanced search across the whole work.

- Build, save and re-run searches as well as combine saved searches.

- Extensive internal cross-referencing and dynamic linking from bibliographic references to primary-source material, increasing the scope of your research rapidly and effectively.

- All articles available as full-text HTML files, or as PDF files that can be viewed, downloaded or printed in their original print format.


For faculty and postgraduate research students in materials science and technology and related disciplines (especially physics, chemistry, engineering and biomedical science) and researchers and staff in government, or industrial institutes, working in materials science and related areas.
