Summary note
Bringing together scientific journals from 1665 to 1925, the Academies of Science Publications collection has a broad chronological and geographic reach. The journals represented here cover the development of modern science from the birth of the scientific method in the early Age of Enlightenment through the first stirrings of quantum physics. The collection includes rare scientific sources unavailable outside of individual archives scattered around the world from San Francisco to London to St. Petersburg. As scientific knowledge spread across Europe and North America in the eighteenth century, researchers organized academies to promote the study and dissemination of useful information. The publications of these academies contain theoretical and practical articles intended for both specialized and informed general audiences, offering a wealth of material to modern scholars. This collection is of use to scientists in multiple fields, as well as to historians, engineers, sociologists, philosophers, and cultural and literary critics.
