Project MUSE launches new web interface

Posted on April 19, 2013 @10:15 pm by madgett

Project MUSE is pleased to announce the release of a new web interface, enhanced with many features to aid ease of navigation, expand discovery, and encourage deeper interaction with the wealth of scholarly content offered by MUSE.

As stated in the publisher’s press release:
The new site design offers several new tools and resources for scholars, librarians, and publishers. MUSE offers full text access to current content from nearly 400 high quality journals in the humanities and social sciences, from some 100 not-for-profit publishers, and the web site’s improved features will help users find, utilize and share this content more readily and efficiently.

A highlight of MUSE’s new web site is wider range of functionality at the individual journal article level, including the ability to email a link, find more articles from the same author(s), and share the article via popular social bookmarking services. Color indicators allow users to easily determine to which content they have full text access, at both the journal and article level.
Improved navigation in the site’s informational pages makes it easier for researchers, librarians, and publishers to access tools such as training guides, usage statistics, journal holdings information, and technical documentation. A new search feature also offers the ability to search only the informational pages, to quickly locate key details such as pricing, upcoming journal additions, or supported technologies. An entirely new section is dedicated to information for current and prospective publishers of journals in MUSE.

More new features including reference linking and Related Articles listings at the journal article level are scheduled for release later this fall and winter.
