For those interested in science history, here's a news note from the Physics Web Alerts: A two month opportunity to have web access to some historic papers:

"News

Newton, Einstein and a monstrous calf (Sep 21)

http://physicsweb.org/article/news/10/9/11


For the first time, the Royal Society is making the complete archive of
their journals freely available online. For a two month period, the
public will be able to access scientific papers going back to 1665, when
Henry Oldenburg published Philosophical Transactions, the first-ever
peer-reviewed journal in the English language. "

That made interesting reading Spherical Cow and thanks for the reference URL s.
I tried a few random Quick searches and put in some Indian math'cians' names. I realised then that it was for physicists

I tried Homi Bhabba (neutrinos etc.) Zero results. Well he is not so well known so I put in the Nobel laureate Chandrashekar and got a blank Imagine that! They had references when I put the initial S. in but it was for a physicist named Chan.

I suppose it means only the papers submitted to the R.S. that are available

What about Bose? Yeah they had him linked with Einstein so that was okay.

Still its a great endeavour to popularise papers in their archives since the 17th century.

I am hoping to read some of Newtons originals time permitting but there are barely a few weeks left for them to be online .
