Platinum Metals Review

Where is Platinum Metals Review? I am trying to find an article that was published there.

The entire archive of Platinum Metals Review from Volume 1, Issue 1 (1957) to Volume 58, Issue 2 (2014) is available in the Journal Archive section on this website. From Volume 58, Issue 3 (2014) the journal has been renamed the Johnson Matthey Technology Review.

Why was Platinum Metals Review renamed the Johnson Matthey Technology Review?

Platinum Metals Review specialised in research involving only the platinum group metals. In the 21st century, Johnson Matthey Plc is a company with interests in a much wider range of science and technology, including base metals, advanced materials and many others, as well as precious metals. Therefore the name of its scientific journal was changed to allow this much broader range of interests to be represented.
