AAAS/Science is seeking direct input from its global online community to help rethink the format and functionality of Science’s online research articles.
They 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
They are inviting readers to review the prototype and share their thoughts with AAAS to help them develop of a new article interface that better accommodates user needs in the rapidly changing electronic environment of scientific information.
