Thanks to the funding provided by the CSBE/SCGAB Foundation, the uploading of Legacy papers is progressing well. Volumes 1 to 30 (years 1959 to 1988) have been scanned and processed for upload. They are available online here: Canadian Biosystems Engineering Journal. It is intended to upload the rest of volumes by the end of January, 2012. There are two sets of files available for download. The download "Full paper" link will give you the machine readable file that is text searchable. You should be able to search the entire paper with keywords. The "Raw file" which is a scanned image of the paper is also available by clicking the title of the paper from the following link:
At present, Volumes 1 to 30 are online. The "Raw files" are image files and not searchable. They were processed using an OCR software which may have substituted wrong characters while making the "Full file." The "raw files" are provided to verify any errors in the "full files."
