JST had launched a project named “Journal@rchive” in 2002. This project entails electronically archiving older, historically important paper-based Japanese journals from their first issue to the latest.
We have successfully archived 664 journals within 5 years since 2009. We published the archived journals on the Journal@rchive website globally, and made available the past important publications to the general public worldwide. This archive includes papers authored by Nobel Prize winners such as Hideki Yukawa, Shinichiro Tomonaga, and Kenichi Fukui, and other famous scientists such as Hantaro Nagaoka, Johkichi Takamine, and Umetaro Suzuki.
The website of Journal@rchive is now integrated with J-STAGE, and you can browse all the publications from the first volume/issue onwards on this platform.
