The Materials Science & Engineering Database provides research and communications on engineering. It contains engineering related full-text articles, finely detailed access to millions of figures and tables within articles, and an index to world literature on technological and engineering innovations.
Patents from all developed countries and many developing countries. Patent Lens (IOI Lens) has a better search interface than the United States Patent & Trademark database. It also provides PDFs of most patents.
Web of Science is the world's largest, high-quality interdisciplinary database back to 1965. All subject areas are covered, but the sciences are covered very well. WoK is easy to use, but it has many advanced features that make it an excellent tool for advanced researchers. See the Web of Science page for searching instructions.
You can search all these databases, or select only one.
