Article Format of the Future: Elsevier Leads the Way for Online Journal Literature
Elsevier has launched new Article of the Future prototypes. From the press release:
The improved Article of the Future format is one of several enhancements Elsevier is introducing to SciVerse ScienceDirect. APIs have been released to allow for applications to be built using ScienceDirect content among other products within the SciVerse suite, and considerable developments have been made to search and discovery functionalities across article content. All of these enhancements are made to enhance the research workflow, with the Article of the Future project specifically focusing on improving the content and presentation of the individual article
The experimental format for online journal articles in the scientific journal literature can be viewed through prototypes in seven disciplines at the Company's Article of the the Future website. If you take a look-see, imagine what a new article format prototype might be for law in the context of what new content opportunities a similar (or substantially different) experimental format might bring to the online legal literature.
