Inspec from the IET

Engaging, Interactive and Informative

In addition to the core subject areas, Inspec also provides significant coverage in related disciplines such as materials science, oceanography, nuclear engineering, geophysics, biomedical engineering and many more. Content includes books, dissertations, patents and reports. 

Focus on Current Research Trends

Inspec is the source to turn to for information on current and developing research trends for related subject areas.

For an example of this, please view the recent Information Today webinar (sponsored by EBSCO) with Inspec scientist Dr. Chris Marker entitled "The Future of Physics, Fracking, and Wearable Tech".

The Institution of Engineering and Technology is registered as a Charity in England & Wales (no 211014) and Scotland (no SC038698).

The page layout on each of the search options is straightforward, and the similarity between the Basic and Advanced Search screens make the tool less intimidating to users of all types.
