A new plastics e-book collection has been announced, geared towards plastics researchers and engineers.
Elsevier, a provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services and Hanser Publishers, a publisher of plastics technology and applied material titles maintain the collection.
The collection will be available on ScienceDirect and contains 55 pieces of plastics engineering literature from Hanser including pieces by authors including Dr. Robert A. Malloy, a member of the Plastics Academy’s Hall of Fame. Also included are books covering plastics design principles, adhesives, rubbers, polymers and extrusion.
The Hanser collection complements the engineering books from Elsevier’s William Andrew and Butterworth-Heinemann imprints, as well as chemistry and materials science books collections already available on ScienceDirect. This focus on plastics and polymers aims to benefit corporations in plastics manufacturing, chemicals, consumer goods, construction, aerospace and automotive, and other downstream sectors where plastic materials are utilized.
