Over 100 years of Scientific American available online

The Scientific American archive brings together over 100 years of content highlighting advancements in science, technology, and medicine. Institutional customers can now access every issue of Scientific American back to January 1910. Scientific American, part of Nature Publishing Group (NPG), entrusted the scanning and digitization of most of the paper archives to MPS Limited's archive conversion unit, following MPS's successful digitization of NPG's flagship journal, Nature. The MPS team designed a set of specialized in-house tools to convert each issue to XML before publishing it online. The text of the content is fully searchable and is presented in PDF form to preserve the look and feel of the original issues. Work to expand Scientific American's archive back to 1845, its first year of publication, is currently under way. Appligent Document Solutions is also assisting in the digitization of the Scientific American archive
