Cell's Article Of The Future-2

Scientific journal Cell has undergone a design change to add a dynamic element to their research articles. Taking a page from web page information architecture, Cell has adopted a new layout that makes navigation easier, and forgoes the staid look of traditional research papers.

Ars Technica reports:

What Cell came up with was a format it has christened “Article of the Future.” Articles of the Future are broken down into their respective sections (Introduction, Discussion, Figures, and so on) with a navigation section at the top, allowing readers to jump to the sections they are most interested in. The landing section of each article is a bullet-point summary and abstract next to a representative image, allowing readers a quick take-away message if that’s all they’re looking for (video descriptions called a “PaperFlick” appear here, when available). You can even zoom in on images (!), which are presented under the Data tab as a film strip. The citations in the body of the paper are also linked to a separate section, where readers can view the citation in full.

Ars Technica: “Cell launches “Article of the Future” format”
