A new website for Annual Reviews

On August 31, 2010, Atypon announced the launch of a refreshed website for Annual Reviews, one of the biggest publishers for scientific literature.
From the press release,
The refreshed website, www.AnnualReviews.org, [is] packed with innovative features that make it easier than ever for researchers to find principal contributions in their field and stay up to date with new developments, including:
  • The ability to quickly preview an article's figures from tables of contents, search results, and most popular content pages
  • Tag-along navigation that keeps an article's figures, references, and related content visible while moving through the article
  • Snippets from cited Annual Reviews articles that accompany the references, giving insight into the context of the citations

"As we continue to add content, features, and functions, this refresh provides a more effective interaction with our articles," said Steve Castro, CFO and Director of Sales and Marketing for Annual Reviews. "Our new review article page unlocks the full depth of our content, making it easier for researchers to discover the relevant literature and information they need."
I'm very happy I contributed to this release, in particular the review page, which you can preview at this sample article: www.AnnualReviews.org/r/sample.
