Emerald has been working on a new site design for release in mid-June, 2010, but is allowing public access to a beta version until the official site is available: http://beta.emeraldinsight.com
According to Emerald, the new site offers a more intuitive, user-friendly design and enhanced search and browse capabilities, the site is easier and more efficient to use. Users will be able to pinpoint research in a more efficient manner, with fewer clicks than the current platform. In addition, users will benefit from searchable journal information pages and superior site performance from quick loading pages. Conducting searches within searches, opening, using and printing documents will be easier.
Researchers can copy abstract citations directly into documents for quick referencing. Recommended reading lists of related articles, based on keyword searches, can also be viewed.
Emerald states that these changes are the first in a series of developments to be introduced throughout 2010 that will see new and enhanced features, functionality and online services including:
- E-mail alerts and RSS
- Reference linking
- Marked lists
- Help Pages
- Document updates (PDF & HTML)
