Royal College of Physicians archive

From the founding charter to 20th-century reports on the effects of smoking, there is a wealth of material on the RCP’s role in relation to contemporary medical advances. The RCP was founded so that physicians could be formally licensed to practise and those who were not qualified could be exposed and punished. There are many archive records defining the RCP’s changing role in setting standards in medical practice. RCP members have always collected manuscripts and papers on a wide range of medical and non-medical topics. As a result the archives contain an eclectic range of 14th- to 19th-century manuscripts. Personal papers of past fellows from the 16th century to the 20th century provide glimpses into the personal lives and social concerns of many distinguished physicians.

News from Science – new restriction to 10 articles per month

The Science journal platform has recently been updated and a restriction has been introduced on the number of  ‘News’ article that can be read each month.

This new ‘metered access’ is being applied to the University of Cambridge as the ‘News’ articles are content that is not included in the print publication and access is  not available for institutional subscribers.

The 10 news article limit will be applied to each IP each month. If you are using a computer on a network you are likely to share your IP with other users. Once 10 articles have been read by users on the IP the image above will appear.

Access to the journal content on the Science platform is unaffected.
