FREE Online Journals


Yes, there are many.

However, to get this topic started, have a look at this resource. Many articles are free, and quite interesting, although not necessarily science related -topics are very widely spread. This is the periodicals section (large).. Sadly most of the science related ones are subscription-based. Arggh I just hate it when journals make money on the backs of hard-working scientists - as science is already paid by the tax-payer! Anyway....

Of course, then there is

Gallica - which is mainly French, with German & English tidbits. In particular, have a look at the
periodicals section which contains several wellknown old journals, such as Berichte, The Journal of Phy. Chem.. Most is in French though.

PNAS is a wellknown science/lifescience journal, articles can be viewed for free that are 6 months old or older. Some articles are rather seminal papers.

Feel free to post sources you know of!

This time it's not books, it's Journals, aka periodicals!

You guys forgot BioMed Central?! :o

http://www.biomedcentral.com/

Then again, since its not that related to chemistry...

Hail Open Access Publishing!!!!!!

sparky (^_^)

P.S. And while I'm at it, you can get some neat articles at http://www.arxiv.org and http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/ , although they are not chemistry related also. :( Physicists and computer scientists here might enjoy, if they don't know about this yet (which I doubt).

Sorry chemoleo, but IOP doesn't offer free access to its articles. I know this because I needed an article from Journal of Physics once, and attempting to retrieve the PDF led me to a login page saying "only registered academic institutions have access". The only way I was able to solve my problem was to e-mail the author of the article I was in need of.

On the right-hand side of the table it says which journals are free. The one you wanted is not.

Didn't notice that. My apologies. :( But this is apparently a recent development. There was no mention of open source on that site quite a while back...

sparky (^_^)

P.S. Thanks also for pointing out that PNAS now allows open access as well; I have now been able to obtain an article that has already taken 4 months to search until now. :D Danke schoen!!!!

The Public Library of Science


or, PLoS, is an open access journal focusing primarily on research papers in biology, medicine, computational biology, genetics an pathogens.
I found their ideology interesting.

Down with those science-community-abusing capitalist profit-hungry publishers! :P

Ahhhhhhh, when will the good people at google ever cease to make me love them? I found this little gem the other day as I was looking for articles for a psych paper. It doesn't differentiate between the subscription and free, but there were quite a few free ones I found. I didn't get much of a chance to look for any chemsitry goodies. You still get the abstract if you don't have a membership.

Affiliation to a university or research institution really helps as they often have complete access to journals and publicatons.

Guess it should be mentioned here that the first page of all pre-1996 ACS articles are free - in case you need a 1 page article, or another article starts on the second page. The scan quality sucks sometimes but they are usually OCR'd.

More importantly, you can UTFSE there, this includes words in the articles.

Literature For Free


Hello,

I am currently undertaking a literature survey for my thesis, and have run into this dearth of free literature of which you speak.

Here is a cool thing:Check out Pubmed

A nice Pubmed/Medline tool at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center site:

http://invention.swmed.edu/etblast/etblast.shtml

it will chew through a paragraph, strip out keywords, and send a query to Pubmed.

http://invention.swmed.edu/etblast/user/user-1114702151/resu...

This looks like a useful tool for locating a set of references related to a topic (as long as the articles are in Medline).:)

Additionally, If you are in graduate school, most journals can be accessed directly on-line thourgh the university library website (I think an undergrad student number may work too). This can get you access to just about any ACS publication (lots and lots of great stuff).

ACS (American Chemical Society) membership also comes with a member number that can be used to access archived (back issues) papers from the ACS hosted databases. If you are a chemical professional, your employer will usually cover the annual dues.

Beware of finding the good German literature ante-1946--a lot of it seems to be "missing" hmm--I think that WWII is interfering with my research.

Anyway, I hope that some of this was usefull!

Best of luck,

O3

There's another way around this problem, if you live in a university town. Go to the university library and see if there are public internet terminals. Most universities have them. You can then download all the articles you like (either save them to floppy, or to the desktop and then email them to yourself using your favourite webmail service).

Works for me, anyway.

Pleeease,


I cannot access this article:

Low-pressure vortex tubes
B Ahlborn et al 1996 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 29 1469-1472 doi:10.1088/0022-3727/29/6/009

from this link: http://www.iop.org/EJ/article/0022-3727/29/6/009/d60608.pdf

It seems that is only free for subscribing institutions. Could someone with college/library access dowload it and post it as an attachment? U2U me in case you can e-mail me.

Pleeease again.

Dear jester,

Which article from which journal of ACS you need? Not only from India, from any where you can not access any secured journals unless you / your Institution is subscribed or use passwords of other authorised subscribers.

If you need article post a request at wanted references thread of this board. Some one will help you.

..... ayush

Have you tried using google to search acs's site? I remember finding an old article I needed like this, although they might have fixed this by now.

The technique is quite simple. I will U2U it to you and anyone else who asks.

P.S. Wrong thread. You want the one right below this one.

It is obvious from the "wanted refs" thread that some members have access to full texts from ACS. If you have a special request - post it, I can usually get the paper within a couple of hours.
