Redesign of Online ASN Journals Ready to Improve User Experience

By ASN Staff

The Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) and the Clinical Journal of American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) online platforms have been relaunched with increased functionality and a new interface providing readers with an on-the-go experience designed for all devices.

The relaunched sites with their modern design, contain numerous new features and functions making the reader experience easier and more efficient – thereby helping ensure that readers and authors can find what they’re looking for when they need it.

Over 30% of readers are coming to the ASN Journal sites from hand-held devices. Therefore, to provide the best possible research and discovery experience, the sites were rebuilt with the mobile experience in the forefront. You’ll find that the streamlining for mobile also serves to enhance the traditional browser experience by providing a cleaner and easier to read interface.

For both sites, the Home Page redesign focuses on content. The most recent Published Ahead of Print Content is the first thing you will see. As you scroll down the page, you will see a section of Featured Articles followed by an image carousel highlighting key images from recent articles. Important Journal and Society Announcements will also be prominently featured. 

Improving the display of figures and tables was also addressed. While they continue to be available inline in the article, the new “figure viewer” provides you with the capability to increase the size of the figure, table, or image to almost full screen – significantly enhancing the readability of the important data.
