Journals and Databases


Databases are searchable indexes of the research articles in journals. They do not house the articles themselves, but will usually link to where you can find the full text. Look for the blue "find it at UF" button! Some of the most useful databasesto get started with for Materials Science and Engineering are the following:

Preprint Servers

Preprints are early versions of research articles which have not yet been peer-reviewed. 
Scientists may choose to disseminate their research as preprints before submitting to an academic journal, which can make the research reported very cutting edge, but these reports should be read critically as they have not yet been reviewed by other experts.
