The title of this post is recycled from an earlier one (which you should go back to and read), with a linguistic upgrade from reader Shuggy. The Royal Society, the oldest scientific society in the English-speaking world, is marking International Open Access Week by making all of its 350+ years of publications open access from now until November 6. I am especially happy to report that this includes many publications by “Mr. Anthony van Leeuwenhoek”, (also known as “Leeuwenhoeck” and “Leewenhoeck”), including those papers mentioned earlier today in celebratory remarks by Matthew commemorating van Leeuwenhoek’s birthday.
The full set of publications, available as pdfs which may be downloaded and saved for perusal at leisure, can be accessed from the Society’s publications webpage. Go and sample the abuntantia for yourself!
