Royal Society Digital Journal Archive

***Apologies for cross posting***

The Royal Society Digital Journal Archive is now free to access 
until 1 February 2009.

The Royal Society Digital Archive is easily the most 
comprehensive journal archive in science and contains some of the 
most significant scientific papers ever published. Covering 
almost 350 years of scientific research across the disciplines it 
is a priceless academic resource. The Royal Society Digital 
Journal Archive, dating back to 1665 and containing approximately 
52,000 articles, is available online and is FREE for a three 
month period.

The development of this digital resource means that the Society's 
online collection now contains every paper ever published in the 
Royal Society's journals - from the very first peer-reviewed 
paper in Philosophical Transactions in 1665 to the most recent 
interdisciplinary article in Journal of the Royal Society 

Seminal research papers include accounts of Michael Faraday's 
groundbreaking series of electrical experiments, Isaac Newton's 
invention of the reflecting telescope and the first research 
paper published by Stephen Hawking. The Archive provides a record 
of some key scientific discoveries from the last 343 years 
including: Halley's description of 'his comet' in 1705; details 
of the double Helix of DNA by James Watson and Francis Crick in 
1954; and Edmond Stone's breakthrough in 1763 that willow bark 
cured fevers, leading to the discovery of salicylic acid and 
later the development of aspirin.

During this three month period, librarians and academics will be 
able to access and download any article from this comprehensive 
scientific publishing resource completely free of charge. Find
