The American Mathematical Society (AMS) has established a complete digital archive of its mathematical research journals. Over 34,000 articles are available from over 100 years of high-quality mathematical research in:
- Journal of the AMS
- Mathematics of Computation
- Proceedings of the AMS,’ ‘Transactions of the AMS
- Bulletin of the AMS.’
All back issues, starting with each journal’s inaugural issue through 2005, are now freely available in electronic format.
Researchers can browse the contents of each journal to find articles and authors in each volume and issue, and can search across the entire archive by journal or group of journals at: http://www.ams.org/joursearch/ .
We will be making sure that this free content is reflected in the library catalogue.continue reading
The RSC has made some of its content available for free:
- All content of their newest journals for the first two volumes.
- All content of RSC journals published between 1997 and 2007
- A sample chapter from each book in their e-book collection.
- Some special promotion material.
This material can be accessed on campus. It is also possible to access it off campus if you first register for a personal account – this involves giving some basic information including your e-mail address.continue reading
Two new journals – Nanoscale and Polymer chemistry – have been launched by the Royal Society of Chemistry. We have free trial access to articles from Nanoscale until December 2010 and to Polymer Chemistry until December 2011. Access is only available on campus.
Polymer Chemistry http://www.rsc.org/Publishing/Journals/PY/index.asp
They can also be accessed by looking them up in Voyager.
Nanoscale will be publishing experimental and theoretical work across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Topics include Synthesis of nanostructured and nanoscale materials, Characterisation of functional nanoscale materials and bio-assemblies, Properties of nanoscale materials, Self-assembly and molecular organisation, Complex hybrid nanostructures, Nanocomposites, nanoparticles, nanocrystalline materials, and nanoclusters, Nanotubes, molecular nanowires and nanocrystals, Molecular nanoscience, Nanoelectronics and molecular electronics, Nanomedicine. It is aimed at a cross disciplinary readership.
Polymer chemistry will be publishing advances in polymer chemistry encompassing all aspects of synthetic and biological macromolecules, and related emerging areas. It aims to provide a showcase for the ongoing efforts driving polymer chemistry, highlighting the creativity of the field and previously inaccessible applications. It is aimed at materials scientists and bioscientists as well as those working in polymer chemistry.continue reading
