The Royal Society - free scientific journal access for first time

Post by Mustang Shooting Stars on Thu Oct 27, 2011 9:26 am

Hi all,

http://royalsociety.org/

I just thought this might be of interest. Some really interesting stuff in there going back to the 1600s.

Just for those who don't know, being a fellow of the royal society is still seen as one of the greatest accolades a scientist can gain - although I think the Nobel prize gets you like a million pounds Smile

Might be of interest anyway as it wasn't previously available...

"The Royal Society has announced that its world-famous historical journal archive which includes the first ever peer-reviewed scientific journal has been made permanently free to access online."

Ok, another interesting historical resource I just came across. Hundreds of years of newspaper archives online.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-15945306

It looks like the full service needs a pretty expensive subscription but some great stuff just in the story on the BBC.
