The Royal Society

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. Around 60,000 historical scientific papers are accessible via a fully searchable online archive, with papers published more than 70 years ago now becoming freely available.”

Tons of great stuff including Isaac Newton’s first published scientific paper, and Benjamin Franklin’s celebrated account of his electrical kite experiment.Woot!
