Take Your Research on the Road This Summer with Mobile Optimized Book Chapters on ScienceDirect

SDiPadIf summer travel has interrupted your research and writing workflow in the past, you will be happy to hear that things can go more smoothly for you this year when using ScienceDirect’s mobile article and book chapter pages.

First announced in 2014, the improved ScienceDirect mobile article page now offers the same technology enhancements for reading book chapters on mobile devices. Say goodbye to the anxiety and eyestrain that comes with trying to read small type on a tiny screen.

Design That Addresses Researchers’ Needs

ScienceDirect designers knew they must approach mobile design in a way that would excite researchers. As the design concepts progressed, the team engaged researchers and librarians to test assumptions and get reactions to prototypes. They also collected feedback on how testers used mobile devices, why certain apps and sites were often preferred, and what problems researchers encountered most when reading articles on mobile devices.

Key Design Features

– Uncompromised access to full-text articles
– Easy readability through crisp text and clean graphics
– A simple search box on every article page
– One-click PDF downloads to Mendeley

Easily Access Mobile Articles with Your ScienceDirect Subscription
