BioMed Central Websites Add Search and Other Features For Mobile Devices

From a BioMed Central Blog Post:

To improve the user experience for users accessing the websites from mobile devices, we’re pleased to announce the second phase of our project to support access from mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

  • Mobile search and search results
  • Mobile ‘Contact us’ pages
  • Mobile navigation menu, accessible from the top of the screen

BioMed Central utilizes responsive design so a special “mobile” url is not needed.
