Journal of Scientific Instruments - free and online

Post by David Rosignoli » Fri Jan 09, 2009 7:07 pm

That's right, folks. All the issues from 1923 to today are available for viewing for free as a pdf file at the below link. This are some particle accelerator related instrumentation articles (e.g., betatron - vol 23, no 12, Dec. 1946).

Nope, $30 a hit for these old papers.

David, the IP of the computer you used to access the site might be registered as a paying client of IOP. You might be at a library, university, or company with a subscription.

IOP, like most of these academic publishers, is a worthless moneygrubbing middleman. Consider that they charge $30 to read papers that were written before the neutron was discovered, for example. God willing, these folks will be out of a job right soon...

Sorry, guys, my mistake. Carl was right. I was accessing at work. The pull up of the documents was transparent - no login was required. So, it must have recognized the work IP as being an acceptable subscriber.

Perhaps Google can rid us of the parasites.

If anything, Google is in collusion with these parasites, preferentially allowing them to "cloak" their content while still feeding it to the Googlebot. I don't care if this is done on Google Scholar or a specialized search feature, but in the general search engine it's a misplaced bit of black-hattery.

I keep a "Web Spamming Hall of Shame" in these forums (it has been duplicated several places on the Web also) that lists who the rotters are and provides examples of their malfeasance.
