New Look for Blackwell Synergy - Preview available now

Blackwell Synergy, the online journals platform from Blackwell 
Publishing, will soon be relaunched with a brand new design. 
This redesign provides easier navigation, faster loading times, 
and improved access to tools for researchers.  In addition, the 
new website will meet the latest accessibility standards (ADA 
section 508 and W3C's WAI-AA). The main visible changes are the 
moving of the major functions to the left-hand menu, the grouping 
together of tools at each level of the website, tabs being 
replaced by left-menu listings and a cleaner look and feel.

To preview the new site and to see what's new, what's changing, 
and what's moving visit: 

In addition to redesigning the website we are continuously 
working to improve the usability and features of Blackwell 
Synergy.  New features added in the last year include RSS 
newsfeeds, citation alerts, top read articles and top cited 

The new Blackwell Synergy still includes all the essential 
benefits for researchers, librarians and journal authors 

- Strong journal branding at all levels

- The facility to add library names and logos to every page

- Extensive linking both within and outside Blackwell Synergy, 
forward and back with reference links and citing article links

- Flexible alerting services: tables of contents, OnlineEarly and 
OnlineAccepted articles, citation alerts, research alerts by 
topic, author or search term, and all alerts available as email 
or RSS newsfeeds

- Industry-standard COUNTER-compliant reporting for librarians 
and societies

The new design has been developed with feedback from users and is 
being made available to a limited number of librarians and other 
users for final review before it is released to everybody in 
mid-January 2007.

If you have any questions or feedback about the new site, please 
contact me directly.
