BioMed Central Journal Articles Now Accessible on Smartphones, Tablets, and Other Mobile Devices
BioMed Central portals and journal websites have been updated so that users on smartphones or tablets have an enhanced experience when viewing full text articles, making better use of small screen sizes and touch-screen functionality. Improving the experience when reading fulltext articles is our first priority, but we will be rolling out further mobile optimizations in the coming months. BioMed Central’s blog network is already optimized for mobile.
BioMed Central uses a ‘responsive’ web design. This means that the website automatically responds to the capabilities of the device that is being used.
