In order to prevent myself (and others) from putting on too tight blinkers and not see the world/science besides my/their field, I started collecting interesting/funny/strange/whatever publications on a monthly basis.

In case you want to have a look at them from remote or just some older ones, here’s the place. Unfortunately not all of these publications are available online for free. But check out your nearest library … or log in to get more details.

And yes I am sorry, but I am a bit behind schedule :|    I’ll try to improve.
