Nature Archives – Now Back to 1970

While this isn’t one of our recommendations on books, it is another resource nature and science lovers need to know about.

The Nature Publishing Group has announced it is releasing their archives to the public back to 1970. Started in 1869, Nature is the the most highly-cited weekly multidisciplinary journal.

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) announced today that the latest installment of the Nature archive will go live on Tuesday, August 2, 2005. A decade of scientific information has been added to Nature‘s online archive at http://www.nature.com/nature/archive enabling users to search back to January 1970. The addition of all content published between January 1970 and December 1979 includes approximately 37,405 articles from 510 issues.

Notable papers from the decade include Lauterburg’s paper on a new imaging technique known as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) (Nature, March 16, 1973), and Gibbons and Hawking’s paper stating evidence for black holes in binary star systems (Nature, August 13, 1971).

Nature is currently digitizing the archives back to 1950. Content will be released in installments of 10 years until completion in 2006. When complete, the Nature archive will contain 2,399 issues and approximately 154,500 articles…

The archives will be available with HTML abstract, PDF version of full article, and linked references using the abstracting services of CrossRef, Medline, and ISI including the ISI Web of Science.
