Since its creation in 1969, Compendex has offered the broadest coverage of significant engineering literature available. Over the past 38 years, the database has expanded its coverage steadily as the volume of published engineering literature has grown. In 2006 alone, over 650,000 new records were added to the Compendex database. Records are carefully selected and indexed to ensure a breadth of literature upon which researchers can rely. Compendex now covers over 5,600 serial sources each year, originating from more than 55 countries.
The 10 millionth article added to Compendex on the Engineering Village discovery platform is titled “Hydrothermal synthesis of hydroxyapatite powders using alkyl ammonium bromides as surfactants.” The article is authored by a team of researchers led by Hyun-Jung Park from the Department of Ceramics Building Materials at the Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology and appears in the journal Key Engineering Materials, volume 342-343, 2007.
“We are extremely proud that the Compendex database continues to keep pace with the ever-growing body of published literature in engineering,” explains Ross Graber, Engineering Information’s Director of Marketing. “Even as Compendex reaches the 10 million record milestone, its records continue to be selected and indexed to provide engineering students and professionals with an invaluable tool for their research. Compendex is now more widely used and trusted as a comprehensive source of quality, engineering-specific literature than ever.”

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
