Display of journal content:
New journal landing and table of contents pages for all titles, including improved journal URLs (previous URLs redirect automatically) and new display of journal title histories, which shows prior and subsequent titles at part of each journal’s bibliographic information.
An improved books experience that mirrors the way journals are treated on the site (including a clear presentation of key user functions like capturing citations and downloading PDFs, and an improved online chapter viewing experience). A “Search within a Book” feature was introduced.
Several linking features were removed for reconsideration. These include: most cited and cited by links, Current Issues linking, Google Scholar links, RSS journal issue feeds. These features may be introduced later after some re-thinking and testing with users to improve the approach.
A new search index and search code were released in 2014, and improvements to the speed of searching were released earlier in 2015. Searches are significantly faster and search relevance has been improved.
The display of search results were revised to include text snippets that show the context of search keywords in the text.
