National Academies offers free PDFs

Posted By Adam Fagen, Thursday, June 02, 2011
The U.S. National Academies, which includes the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council, has announced that it will be making PDF copies of all its reports available for free download.

Since 1994, all Academies reports have been available to read for free online on a page-by-page basis.  Many of its titles have also been available for free download worldwide, and all titles free for readers in the developing world.

As of today, however, all reports for which there are PDF versions will be available for free download from the National Academies Press website (

The National Academies publishes more than 200 books per year on a wide range of topics in science, engineering, and health, often offering advice to the government and the scientific community on issues of contemporary concern.

ASPB members may be especially interested in reports from the Board on Life Sciences and the Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources.
