The Royal Society has made its its digital archive accessible free of charge until 1 February 2009. The archive, which contains the Royal Society’s publications since the foundation of Philosophical Transactions in 1665, is an amazing resource for historians of science and technology. The archive is normally only available to subscribers as part of one of the Royal Society’s ‘packages’ of journals. Not only does it include a great variety of current science and technology, but it also includes papers from great scientists, such as Humphry Davy and William Herschel.
Enjoy this resource while they are free!
