Free public database on nanoparticle safety

Tired of garbled news articles on nanoparticle safety? I certainly am. Now, the International Council on Nanotechnology (which I serve as an Advisor) has published the first public database of peer-reviewed journal articles examining environmental, health, and safety issues arising from both engineered and incidental nanoparticles (press release in PDF). You can help improve it by using the addition/correction form. It’s free, but there’s a catch: “Site registration or payment may be required to access the full content of these articles.” Sigh — now we just need more open access journals.
