American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)


The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a not-for-profit membership organisation that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering fields. The ASME Digital Library comprises peer-reviewed journals, e-books and conference proceedings containing current and relevant content in mechanical and other engineering fields. Related topics include medical device research, energy resources and management. ASME has developed this proposal to meet the growing need for engineering content in South Africa and neighbouring countries.

What does the ASME Digital Collection hold?
With 29 journals, over 160 eBooks and hundreds of conference proceedings, the collection houses the most current and relevant content in mechanical engineering and spans across topics in other engineering-related fields. Some other topics include medical device research, energy resources, and management. The collection also includes past research, such as ASME’s Journal Archive, which dates back to 1960.

The ASME Journal Program has been established to further the progress of science through the sharing of the latest engineering research. Each ASME Journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in their respective field. The professionally curated content includes the history of mechanical engineering research as well as the cutting-edge discoveries being made today. Here is the complete list of 29 titles available in 2016:

• Applied Mechanics Reviews
• Journal of Applied Mechanics
• Journal of Biomechanical Engineering

ASME 2016 SANLiC Proposal

Conference Proceedings
ASME sponsors more than 30 conferences per year and publishes approximately 100 proceedings volumes annually. Conference topics encompass the entire spectrum of subject areas of interest to engineering. Individual papers from 2002 to the present are currently available through the ASME Digital Collection.

The ASME Press eBooks Package includes 160 new and classic eBooks that will increase by approximately 20 new titles per year. ASME eBooks support ASME’s most popular international standards publications, such as the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME-BPVC), as well as concise, scholarly monographs in subjects such as bioengineering, nanotechnology, and energy sustainability. ASME Press books contribute to ASME’s worldwide reputation as a source of essential information for engineering.
