New Interface for ScienceDirect

Elsevier has recently released a new interface for its ScienceDirect platform.

The new release has four key upgrades:

  • A simplified user experience, with less visual clutter and improved design
  • Better visibility of open access content
  • Quicker discovery of relevant ScienceDirect content from search engines
  • Seamless export of citations and full-text articles to Mendeley

Library Student Journal

I’m not sure why I didn’t know about Library Student Journal before last week -  produced by and for library students and practitioners!  At this point it is only published once a year but since it is an open access journal all articles (since 2006) are available on the website. Also, it looks like a recruitment is currently under way for the editorial staff. Any interested contributors to the journal can check out the various position descriptions on the LSJ Editor’s Blog.
