Encyclopedia of Life Sciences
http://els.wiley.com/els/public/home/default.asp?trk=ph

Does anybody have access to this site? I was googling for some materials for my project and came over this site, but when I clicked in the article link, it asked me to login :?


Edit:
I think it costs money :(

Yes it does cost money. I ran into it a few weeks ago. It is a great encyclopedia from the looks of it, but you are right: information should be free
