Category:Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society

English: Quote from http://rsta.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/by/year: "The first issue of Philosophical Transactions was published on 6 March 1665, under the visionary editorship of Henry Oldenburg. In 1886, the breadth and scope of scientific discovery had increased to such an extent that it became necessary to divide the journal into two: Philosophical Transactions A, covering the physical sciences; and Philosophical Transactions B, covering the life sciences."
