Royal Society releases its electronic journal archives - for two months

Category : resources

"Over 340 years of landmark science available for first time." Royal Society press release, 14 Sep 2006.

"The complete archive of the Royal Society journals, including some of the most significant scientific papers ever published since 1665, is to be made freely available electronically for the first time today (14th September 2006) for a two month period.

The archive contains seminal research papers including 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 Society's online collection, which until now only extended back to 1997, contains every paper published in the Royal Society journals from the first ever peer-reviewed scientific journal, Philosophical Transactions in 1665..."

Go on, help yourselves: The Complete Journals Archive from 1665.

Thanks to Joelle for the alert!

Hot coffee in the Conservation Biology Lab!

Category : people

Be warned that it's a slow news day...

I popped in to the Conservation Ecology Lab to get a book off Navjot Sodhi that he thinks is suitable for next year's introductory Animal Behaviour module.

That's always dangerous place to wander in and true enough I got coffee splashed on my rear by Arvin with David adding insult to injury by pretending to grab my rear. Reuben couldn't resist and just had to capture the event with Mary Rose looking on in approval. You have been warned about this lot. The coffee they offer you may not reach your lips!

In the centre of the lab were two Aussies who have passed Navjot the flu. If you were intending to chat with him, it might be a good time; he can hardly speak now which means he cannot respond as, erm, healthily as he normally does!
