The Lancet launches New Website

The Lancet Informing and Reforming Medicine

The Lancet.com gets a makeover and has relaunched following an extensive review of the readership. Employing ‘development partners’ The Lancet’s new website has essentially been designed ‘with physicians, for physicians’. This new site should reduce the problems with the old site such as repetitive login requests, poor search functionality and slow loading speed

The highlights of the new site features include:

  • Clean and crisp interface
  • Rapid page loading
  • Enhanced multimedia integration with Internet TV, 3D video and podcasts
  • Improved search engine with integrated Medline search
  • ‘Editors highlights’ – effectively a snapshot overview of each article
  • ‘Editors choice’ – top three articles with editorial comments
  • Reduced ‘ring fencing’ gaining access to information out-with the journal through the site
In addition to the Lancet journals’ medical news, research, review, and opinion, the new site offers more functionality and features and will continue to expand in the coming months. The new site combines the journals of The Lancet, The Lancet Infectious Diseases, The Lancet Oncology, and The Lancet Neurology in a single website.

Applying the same rigor to developing our new website that we apply to publishing our content, we worked with development partners around the globe. Together we’ve worked hard to create a site where, with a single click, you can easily find articles we’ve published in your field. And to give you even more context, we’ve added unique online-only content such as Editors’ Notes, video and podcasts.

…and there is more to come such as article collections (e.g. cardiology portal); online panels and discussion groups!

    Sure is much more cleaner and slicker than the old website.

    It really impresses me how much Elsevier has penetrated in the market for information for medical professionals.

    It’ll be interesting to see how this site develops.
