THE IMPORTANCE IS INCALCULABLE, THE COST IS FREE:

Royal Society's archive is free on the internet (Robert Colvile, 15/09/2006, Daily Telegraph)

The Royal Society has made every paper submitted to it since 1665 available free of charge on the internet, opening one of the greatest storehouses of scientific knowledge to the public.

Readers will be able to browse through countless papers of incalculable historical importance, including Halley's description of his comet, Watson and Crick's unravelling of the double helix structure of DNA and the first paper published by Stephen Hawking. [...]

The archive, at www.journals.royalsoc.ac.uk, will only be available free until December.
