Wiley Announces New Anywhere Article Functionality for JPAM
March 4, 2014 01:14 PM
Wiley recently announced their Anywhere Article update to their online library, where APPAM members can read current and past articles published in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. The new functionality operates on any reading device, be it desktop, tablet, or smartphone. The responsive web design delivers elegance and utility on every page.
To view the new functionality for JPAM, please go to the Journal’s homepage at the Wiley Online Library and select ‘Enhanced Article (HTML)’ option for any published article. For a quick view, please follow this link to a recent JPAM article.
The initial release focuses on improving the reading experience of RS articles in several important ways:
Better readability - Wiley prioritized how the content is viewed in every detail, from font choice, to page layout. Superfluous information has been removed. Customers requested a reading experience that was similar to a PDF in terms of simplicity, with clean, uncluttered design, but with the extra features and information available that HTML can provide.
Better presentation of information - A key design principle was to make sure that the article can be scanned for the scholarly and scientific information that is important to the reader, and then, if they choose, access that information without losing their place in the article. DOI, publication history, funding information and keywords, are all available – simply click on the relevant link under the article title.
Sidebar – the sidebar tray allows readers easy access to important information, such as references, at any point in the reading experience, without losing their place on the page. The references also contain links for cross-referencing. The sidebar provides links to:
The PDF version of the article
Information about the article (publication history etc.)
Figure browser – as well as viewing a figure in context, the reader can browse through all other figures in the article at the same time, and quickly navigate to each figure’s corresponding context in the article. They can clear space to focus on the figures, pan and zoom, and download the image as a Powerpoint to insert into a presentation or lecture.
Mobility – the responsive HTML that underlies the article will adapt to any device – desktop, tablet, or mobile – to give the optimal reading experience.
Article Header – The Article header includes Journal & Council branding, journal cover and issue details/link.
Article Section Navigation – A navigation tool for jumping to article sections and additional data, is always available on the screen for quick navigation.
Wiley also indicates that more features are coming over the next several months, including exporting citations; article tools that include print, email, share, permissions, and more; metrics; embedded video; and simple and advance search functionality.
