It really depends on what you are looking for. Taking amorphous steel
as an example, I'm not at all interested in the data that some grad
student might get when testing a small piece of material s/he may have
splat quenched in their own laboratory, even though it makes for an
interesting read in the technical journals. If that's what you seek,
then you really should do a literature search of articles in said
technical press, and read the articles.
Personally, I'm interested in technical data for available materials-
something I can buy from reputable sources, who've made their products
in reproducible ways. THAT kind of data can be gotten from those folks
trying to sell you their products. So, if you have a commercial source
for your material, you can likely find, or generate, the data needed.
While I doubt this helps, it's my jaded 2 cents...
