One million pages on the history of science to be freely available
AThomas's bookmarks 2019-12-03
"Not-for-profit technology provider for research and education, Jisc, and global publisher, Wiley, are poised to digitise a one-million-page collection on the history of science.
The collection will largely comprise content from the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS), now the British Science Association (BSA). UK universities will also be able to put their collections forward for inclusion in this digital archive provided the content complements the BAAS archive and meets practical and logistic considerations.
The collaboration between Jisc and Wiley is the first to offer universities a chance to influence what material is digitised by a commercial publisher."
