Tribology International Keywords

  • Tribology International has traditionally contained author indexes and contents lists at the end of each year. Useful though these are, we believe that they would be enhanced by the addition of indexes compiled from keywords associated with each paper. This would allow readers to identify groups of papers in similar areas.
    In an electronic environment, the need for a uniform keyword system is particularly important to facilitate effective information search and retrieval. To ensure a consistent approach we have prepared a list of preferred keywords for use. This list is not exhaustive and should be used as a guideline. If youfeel there are serious omissions please do not hesitate to contact the Editor-in-Chief or Publisher to ensure that new terms are added.
