The first scientific paper ever published

The first scientific paper (as far as we know) can  be retrieved from the excellent website of the Royal Society “Tryals proposed by Mr. Boyle to Dr. Lower, to be made by him, for the improvement of transfusing blood out of one live animal into another”.

This seems basically the same what Corona researchers are trying today with convalescent serum (although this may be dangerous due to rogue auto-antibodies against type I IFNs that may be transfused as well).
