AAAS/Science – Now Beta Testing New Online Article Prototype

Science – Rethinking Online Research Articles  

 AAAS/Science is seeking direct input from its global online community to help rethink the format and functionality of Science’s online research articles.

 We rolled out an initial prototype in the 28 January 2011 issue of Science which features a variety of new ideas for online article viewing, including:

 *     Tabbed interface

*     Summary material placing the article in context

*     Treatment for figures and supporting online data more visually adapted to the text

 We invite readers to review the prototype and share their thoughts with AAAS . Your direct input will help us in the development of a new article interface that better accommodates user needs in the rapidly changing electronic environment of scientific information.

 Click here to review the prototype and share your thoughts with AAAS and its global online community.

 Please share this message with your patrons and encourage them to submit their critique about Science’s beta test of the new research article view.
