Over the next few months we will be making changes to the registration procedure for E-mail Alerts on the Platinum Metals Review website. We will begin by introducing a new registration form which will allow readers to specify their areas of interest in platinum group metal (pgm) science and technology. This will help us to tailor our content and to implement new services which we plan to roll out over the coming months.

Readers who are already signed up for E-mail Alerts will be given the opportunity to update their records with the additional information that will enable them to benefit from our new services. We will let you know when this facility becomes available. The benefits to you will include the availability of more focused, more relevant content that is of interest to your specialist subject area. There will be an option to select as many or as few subject areas as you wish so that you can receive targeted alerts, as well as continuing to use Platinum Metals Review to keep up to date on developments in all of the applications of the pgms, which remains the primary aim of the Journal.

The first additional service that we will offer will be Virtual Issues on a particular subject area, in which we will collect all of the most relevant content on that subject from our archives, and provide access to it in one convenient package. These Virtual Issues will cover subjects of current interest to pgm researchers, aiming to provide in-depth coverage of their fields.

Planned future topics for Virtual Issues include:

  • South African PGM Science

  • Russian PGM Science

  • Glass Technology

  • Fuel Cells

  • Catalysis by Gold and the PGMs

As always we welcome input from the pgm community. If you have any suggestions of subjects that you would like to see covered in a Virtual Issue, please contact the Editor at the E-mail address:, or via our website contact form at:
