A special web page has been prepared with information about the release of this collection. You may find it at: http://www.jstor.org/about/gensci_release.html
This page includes links to a detailed list of the General Science Collection journals with title history information, handouts, shelf labels, and other support materials. We have enjoyed working on this collection, and we are sure you will find much of interest within it.
As you may well imagine, the content of these early years includes some unique items. For an interesting sampling, we recommend these examples:
- Search all the General Science titles for "Benjamin Franklin" in the author field.
- Search all the General Science titles for "Isaac Newton" in the author field.
- Search "All General Science journals" for "Halley" NEAR within 10 words "comet" in full-text, sort results by the oldest items first.
- View the accompanying illustrations in "An Appendix to the Directions for Seamen, Bound for Far Voyages," Philosophical Transactions (1665-1678), Vol. 1. (1665 - 1666), pp. 147-149.
The General Science Collection is offered separately from the Arts & Sciences I Collection and the newly released Ecology & Botany Collection.
