SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF ADVANCED MATERIALS
- Classification Scheme -

Purposes of the use:
(1) Classify articles by fields (by authors when submitted, by editorial staff when accepted).
(2) Categorize articles under the "Field menu" (Table of Contents) in the STAM online journal.
(3) Description for STAM audience.
(4) Description for database companies, such as Thomson, PubMed.
