With Temperature Articles
Numerous serial publications, notably journals and
industry-oriented magazines, provide an extensive range of technical and summary
articles on temperature sensors, advances in device technology and applications,
calibration and standards. Some are listed below, with hotlinks wherever possible,
describing the individual publications. Some publications concentrate solely on
the area of temperature measurment and devices, while others cover a wider scope,
as indicated. Some are peer-reviewed journals while others are unreviewed.
reader is cautioned to be careful not to believe everthing written, even in refereed
publications. Be cautious, especially before committing any resources to something
new or possibly harzardous. When in doubt, we have found that checking with several
independent and objective sources will help shape prudent decisions.
Refereed Publications (Journals)
The following publications are notable
sources of technical articles on temperature measurement and the devices used
Temperatures- High Pressures, A refereed journal (ISSN 0018-1544) published
six times per year that specializes in the topics described by its name. Has long
been a source of excellent papers on high temperature topics in radiation thermometery-
a publication of Pion, Ltd,
- Review of
Scientific Instruments (RSI), A monthly refereed publication of the American
Institute of Physics for many, many years. (All kinds of sensors and their
- Optical Engineering, A monthly referred journal published
by SPIE, the International Society of Optical Engineering. (Mostly involve thermal
imaging and radiation thermometry and other optical techniques of temperature
- IEEE Sensors Journal. A special publication of the
Institute of Electrical and Electrical Engineers, the USA's professional society
for Electrical/Electronic engineers,a group with about 100,000 members.
of Physics (Part E). The techical monthly publication of The Institute of
Physics in the UK is notable for its many temperature sensor-related articles
that are submitted and published from all around the world.
The technical journal of the metrology community, has regular papers on temperature
standards, new sensor developments and items of interest to those intererested
in the International Temperature Scales. It has been running since 1965 and has
been published by the BIPM since 1991. Many recent articles in it database are
available online, but at a charge. The title and abstracts can be found by searching
its online database. As of November 2003, there were 422 back articles related
to temperature in the database.
(Metrologia est une revue internationale qui
traite des aspects scientifiques de la métrologie. Metrologia est publié depuis
1965 et le BIPM en est l'éditeur depuis 1991. Un complément d'informations sur
Metrologia est donné plus bas, uniquement en langue anglaise.)
FYI, BIPM is
the International Bureau of Weights and Measures located near Paris, France. In
French its name is Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, or, as an acronym,
Unrefereed Journals, Magazines and Other Publications
- Sensors Magazine Online.
Formerly a free popular, monthly technical magazine with wide circulation, now exclusively online at www.sensorsmag.com. Has regular
temperature-related articles and an extensive archive of back articles on its
website. Articles are not technicaly reviewed, some are excellent, in our opinion,
some are not.
The monthly members magazine of the ISA: the International Instrumentation, Systems
and Automation Society headquartered in the USA. Many of the articles are from
non-critically reviewed presentations made at ISA meetings. Others, especially
summary articles, are by staff writers who evidently have little technical expertise.
Watch for expansion of this area as there are lots of publications like
these around the world. If you have any favorites and would like to see them here,
