Technical reports are written by engineers about their designs, projects and other work. They are often more detailed than a journal article, but are not normally peer-reviewed. Technical reports can be good sources of practical information for using in your coursework and future employment. Reports from the USA are often easier to find than reports from the UK, particularly if the project was funded by the US government.
Providing access to over 200,000 items of technical literature for the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Provided by the Society of Petroleum Engineers on behalf of 21 publishing partners. Content dating from 1885 to present.
Technical reports written by members of the IBM Research community.
Sometimes the IBM website only has the abstract for the paper. This is often because the paper has been published elsewhere, and may be available from a different Heriot-Watt resource. Try searching Discovery for the title of the paper you are looking for, or ask the library.
Includes the Energy Citations Databases, a US Government publications about energy, which includes some technical reports. Covers 1943 to date.
The Energy Citations Database has information about 2.6 million energy-related scientific and technical publications from the US Department of Energy and its predecessors. Recent publications are available in full text.
