Useful Information Sources



Traditionally printed publications were relied upon to provide specialist news and articles on the Steel Industry, with publications like Metal Bulletin as market leaders. Increasingly organisations like MEPS and Steel on the net have moved to the forefront as sources of industry news and information. Furthermore Newsfeeds and Weblogs can be very informative and the role of the "printed" publication is diminishing. A number of the sites listed here are primarily subscription only sites, so I have put them in to a separate section at the end of the listing, as very little information can be found on their sites, other than how to subscribe.
