*shakes fist at Elsevier*

I'm heading into the Army for OCS in August, but I'm still very interested in keeping current on science and the current research papers. I've devised a contrivance to keep myself plugged in and reading - a personal blog where I summarize the papers that interest me, more simply to give me a place and a reason to do it.

However, as you can imagine, the sticking point is actually finding papers to read. I've set up a few Google Scholar alerts, and I've looked over PLOS, but are there any other resources I'm missing? Or am I going about finding papers all wrong, and should just plump for Science and Nature subscriptions? My field of interest is primarily biology, which is most of the problem - if I was a physicist, this would be a snap, but I enjoy chewing on something well out of my field, too.
