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.
