Journal access for NASW members

We are pleased to announce that NASW members are eligible to receive free access to the journals of the American Physical Society.

This resource allows users to access to the full-text articles in the APS journals, which include the Society’s flagship publication Physical Review Letters, Physical Review A (atomic, molecular, and optical physics), B (condensed matter and material), C (nuclear), D (particles, fields, gravitation, and cosmology), and E (statistical, nonlinear, biological and soft matter) as well as Reviews of Modern Physics. Access also includes the journals' archives, which date back to 1893, and contain many of the most significant papers in the history of modern physics. Access will also come with a journal account that allows users to set up a "saved search" and receive e-mail alerts about new papers on a topic or topics of interest.

I'm delighted that APS is offering NASW members access to APS journals and its archives. I'll now send an e mail to the NASW director to confirm my request.

Thanks to APS for this valuable benefit, and to those in NASW who were involved in making it happen. This is fantastic.
