The journal archives of the Royal Society in the UK, which has been promoting scientific research for over 300 years, are now available online, and access to the archives will be free for 2 months (starting on Sept 14th). After that, it will only be available via subscription or fee-based downloads. This is an amazing and one-of-a-kind record of some of the most important scientific papers ever written.
From the website: “Spanning nearly 350 years of continuous publishing, the archive of nearly 60,000 articles includes ground-breaking research and discovery from many renowned scientists including: Bohr, Boyle, Bragg, Cajal, Cavendish, Chandrasekhar, Crick, Dalton, Darwin, Davy, Dirac, Faraday, Fermi, Fleming, Florey, Fox Talbot, Franklin, Halley, Hawking, Heisenberg, Herschel, Hodgkin, Hooke, Huxley, Joule, Kelvin, Krebs, Liebnitz, Linnaeus, Lister, Mantell, Marconi, Maxwell, Newton, Pauling, Pavlov, Pepys, Priestley, Raman, Rutherford, Schrodinger, Turing, van Leeuwenhoek, Volta, Watt, Wren, and many, many more influential science thinkers up to the present day.”
I think everyone should check it out. My only problem is where to start really.
