NASA’s New Online Archive Puts a Wealth of Free Science Articles Online

Since our website took flight a decade ago, we've kept you apprised of the free offerings made available by NASA--everything from collections of photography and space sounds, to software, ebooks, and posters. But there's one item we missed last summer (blame it on the heat!). And that's NASA PubSpace, an online archive that gives you free access to science journal articles funded by the space agency. Previously, these articles were hidden behind paywalls. Now, "all NASA-funded authors and co-authors ... will be required to deposit copies of their peer-reviewed scientific publications and associated data into" NASA PubSpace.

This project grew out of the Obama administration's Open Science Initiative, designed to increase public access to federally funded research and make it easier for scientists to build upon existing research. You can search through NASA's archive here.
