We are happy to announce the launch of our newly designed responsive website at www.jmir.org and its sister journals. The new stunning design, which features articles cards on the homepage, improved search functionality, easy switching between journals using a drop-down list, altmetrics, improved downloading of bibliographic data into personal reference managers, and other new features, has been in the works for 10 months. "Responsive" means that the website is automatically optimized for different screen sizes and devices, including mobile (change the width of the journal browser to see how this changes the layout).
"My ambition was to make JMIR the most cutting-edge, beautiful, and advanced academic journal site on the web", says Josh Flowers, Lead Designer and Director of User Experience at JMIR Publications.
Please tell us if we succeeded! Our feedback form is here - if you are a past author we also want to have quotes from you which we would like to feature on our slider on the homepage.
Our next steps are to redesign the backend which includes an easier submission and peer-review process.
JMIR Publications is a leading open access publisher based in Toronto, Canada, which publishes high-quality peer-reviewed journals since 1999. Learn more about us here.
