Summary

Scientific journals provide a ‘marketing’ opportunity for the researcher to a target audience of engineers, scientists, and technologists. The Journal of The American Ceramic Society (JACerS) target audience is people interested in the advancement of technical ceramics. A key component of that advancement is mechanical behavior. Of the 552 papers published in JACerS in 2000, 97 contained a component of mechanical property data. Using a simple three step screening criteria, this study found that only 20 of the 97 papers provided the reader with sufficient information to independently verify the authors' findings. Further data and implications of this result are discussed in this paper.
