Now you can access links spanning 80 years of seminal physics research
AIP is happy to let you know that live links are now in place for references in all AIP journal articles going back to the very first issue of each. This final stage of an ambitious initiative brings the total of linkable references to the backfiles of AIP journals (see list below) to nearly 4,000,000. The initiative incorporates reference links that extend as far back as 1930 — the year AIP published the debut issue of Review of Scientific Instruments.

Trial access to Organic Reactions has been made available for Volumes 25–74, 1977–2009.
Publisher’s Description about Organic Reactions:
“Organic Reactions is a comprehensive collection of important synthetic reactions, together with a critical discussion of the reaction and tables that organize all published examples of the topic reactions. Chapters that focus on reactions of current interest are solicited by the board of editors from leading chemists worldwide. The publication process entails a comprehensive peer-review process, ensuring the high quality and attention to detail for which this series is noted. Organic Reactions currently consists of over 140,000 reactions, and will continue to grow annually.
The annual Horizon Report is a collaborative effort between the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) and the New Media Consortium (NMC). Each year, the report identifies and describes six areas of emerging technology likely to have a significant impact on teaching, learning, or creative expression in higher education within three adoption horizons: a year or less, two to three years, and four to five years. The areas of emerging technology cited for 2010 are:
