NSDL Classic Articles in Context
The Classic Articles in Context (CAC) project (2008) of the National Science Digital Library integrated important works of scientific inquiry into dynamic learning spaces for teachers and learners. To achieve the goal of illustrating science as a process that builds on discovery and replication expressed in the archival literature of research, worked with selected publishers to make the full texts of certain "classic" articles available to patrons whether or not they or their institution hold a subscription to the journals in which the articles appeared.
Papers featured in a CAC topical concentration include a narrative essay providing an overview of the investigation suitable for undergraduate science courses. The essays discuss significant aspects of the studies (e.g. novel experimental methods) based on the state of understanding at the time of publication and with respect to the larger published literature of the field (noting, for example, how a given set of findings influenced subsequent work).
