4 Scientific archives

Bernal's 4 types of scientific archive:

  1. ephemeral notices of daily laboratory life, such as accounts of new discoveries, techniques, meetings, and discussions;
    短暫的日常實驗室紀錄,
  2. handbooks and popular works on science, relating scientific progress to common human needs and aspirations;
    科普作品與工作手冊
  3. ““old-style”” journals, serving the limited purpose of giving the latest news from the world of research and discussing the social impact of scientific discoveries; and
    舊式期刊
  4. detailed, comprehensive reports and monographs documenting the advancement of each singular field of science over time as well as the interrelationships of various fields.
