Behavioral & Brain Science Preprint Archive
"...is an international, interdisciplinary journal of "open peer commentary," published by Cambridge University Press, with its editorial offices in Southampton UK and New York NY. BBS publishes important and controversial interdisciplinary "target articles" in psychology, neuroscience, behavioral biology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, linguistics and philosophy. Articles are rigorously refereed and, if accepted, are circulated to a large number of potential commentators around the world in the various specialties on which the article impinges. Their 1000-word commentaries are then co-published with the target article as well as the author's response to each. The commentaries consist of analyses, elaborations, complementary and supplementary data and theory, criticisms and cross-specialty syntheses."
The Path from Research to Human Benefit
"...is a series of articles that trace the origins of important recent technological and medical advances. Each story reveals the crucial role played by basic science, the applications of which could not have been anticipated at the time the original research was conducted."
Subjects include: Agriculture ; Biology ; Chemistry ; Earth Sciences ; Environmental Issues ; Health ; Mathematics ; Physics ; Technology.
Bibliography of Genetic Variation in Natural Populations
"This bibliography of over 40,000 references has been accumulated over the last 25 years. The primary focus is the study of genetic variation in natural populations of animals, plants, and microbes. The secondary focus has been conservation, with an emphasis on the application of genetic principles to conservation. Nevertheless, this is a somewhat eclectic collection of titles that reflects my sometimes wandering interests and teaching responsibilities over the years (evolution, human genetics, etc.)...There is a taxonomic bias in this bibliography towards fish, especially salmon, trout, and their kin. There has been no effort to exclude papers dealing with the genetics and conservation of other taxa, but there has been an effort to include more papers on the general biology and natural history of salmonid fishes."

Biomedical Acronym Database
"This database was constructed in a purely automated manner, using a set of heuristics to identify acronyms/abbreviations and their definitions within MEDLINE records. Currently, it is the world's largest and most comprehensive catalog of biomedical acronyms and abbreviations, containing approximately 257,000 out of an estimated 277,000 unique acronyms within MEDLINE."
