All PLOS Journals Have a New Look, Redesign Now Live

From the PLOS Blog:

On the eve of our tenth anniversary, we’re pleased to announce that the redesign of all PLOS journals is now live. The three goals of this initiative were to:

  1. Ensure that readers can quickly assess the relevance and importance of an article through a figure browser and highly visible Article-Level Metrics
  2. Improve site navigation to help users discover content more easily
  3. Launch a flexible platform from which to build out future innovations

This refresh offers users more effective ways to access and read content, updates the overall appearance of the sites and harmonizes them with our new PLOS look announced earlier this year.
