ASTM Magazine Launches New Website
It offers free access to news about standards activity in 10 specific sectors.
ASTM International recently launched a new online version of its flagship magazine, Standardization News, that is available free to all visitors at www.astm.org/standardization-news. The site offers more frequently updated ASTM news organized by industry sector, with these 10 industry gateways serving as web portals to information about ASTM standards development activities, dates of meetings and training courses, publications, and more, according to the society.
The site also provides access to digital editions of the bimonthly magazine's current issues and access to versions in Spanish and Chinese.
The 10 industry gateways are Building Construction, Transportation and Infrastructure, End Use Products and Recreation, Chemicals, Metals and Materials Analysis, Energy, Personal and Occupational Safety, Medical, Environment and Sustainability, and Quality Assurance.
ASTM said a visitor to the Building Construction gateway "will see not only the latest SN features, columns, and news articles covering this sector, but also other ASTM listings, such as new and draft standards, upcoming technical committee meeting dates and training courses, papers and publications, and Proficiency Testing Programs, all related to building construction."
"ASTM International standards cover diverse industries, and the readers of Standardization News represent a wide and varied cross-section of industry sectors," said Editor-in-Chief Maryann Gorman. "This new online format is an exciting opportunity to give those readers quick access to the news and information they have the greatest interest in. The industry gateways also give readers an easy way to see what's new in standards development across their sector, offering a user-friendly, subject-based resource."
