Accessing the Royal Society Collection

For the Case community,
I’m writing to make you aware that you currently have access to all journals published by the Royal Society, through Case Western Reserve University. The collection includes seven world-class journals, containing landmark articles from some of the biggest names in science.

The Royal Society collection was recently named by Information World Review as an invaluable resource to researchers: "With an archive stretching back to the origins of science and featuring its greatest names, this is a resource that few in scientific research or history will be able to do without.”

To access our archive, please search the eJournal Portal for your favorite title.

Below we list some highlights of recently published and forthcoming articles that might interest you.

Highly cited articles – you can view the most downloaded articles and most cited articles from our journals’ home pages. This month you can view one of our most popular downloads, Focused Tsunami Waves, a new paper by Proceedings A editor, M.V. Berry.

Groundbreaking forthcoming issues - we also have a host of new issues coming up, from Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Applications to Nanotechnology to The Boreal Forest and Global Change.

To keep up to date with the latest articles published by the Royal Society in your area of interest, you can register for regular email alerts.

If you would like to know more about Royal Society journals, particularly our extensive archive collection, dating back to 1665, please visit our web site.

Journal Costs Keep Climbing

Do you know how much journals cost, especially in science and engineering?

Cornell University Library uses real world purchases to show you how much libraries invest in your education and research needs. Check out Sticker Shock 2 for more information. I am scared when they compare journals to cars and international trips.

The original Sticker Shock was completed in 2002.
