Korean Researchers Gain Access to Digital Archives of Science through KISTI

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) partners with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) to provide sitewide access to Science Classic, the digital archives of Science (1880-1996), to institutions across Korea. AAAS and KISTI finalized the national license agreement in October 2013, which offers online access to 600 participating members of the KESLI Consortium (Korean Electronic Site Licensing Initiative).

KISTI’s mission is to help researchers generate excellent results through higher value-added information. In an effort to increase the amount of scientific resources available to the research community in Korea, KISTI and AAAS are working together to deliver access to key articles about the history of science from the late 19th through the early 21st centuries. Online access to Science Classic is provided directly from the publisher’s website, ScienceClassic.org.

“We are very excited about this partnership, which supports Korea’s vibrant research community and promotes further important advances in science and technology,” said Marcia McNutt, Editor-in-Chief of the journal Science. “Science Classic offers 116 years’ worth of high-impact scientific literature, allowing Korean scholars, scientists, and students direct access to those landmark papers that formed the foundation of their current studies and research interests.”

“KISTI is very pleased to be able to offer their researchers world-renowned content through the Science Classic contract, and hopes to continue the collaboration with AAAS. We believe this agreement will benefit our researchers and encourage the development of KESLI,” said Ho-Nam Choi, Director of the KISTI Information Service Center.

Science Classic, maintained and preserved by AAAS, delivers more than a century’s worth of full-text news articles, commentary, reviews, perspectives, and peer-reviewed research papers from the annals of the world’s largest general science journal. Readers have access to the high-resolution PDF version of each full-text article published from 1880 to 1996, including interactive bibliographic citations, abstracts, and references. Visit the digital archives today: ScienceClassic.org.
