The Article of the Future is now live! Have you experienced it?

Resulting from the Article of the Future project innovations, we are now able to announce the SciVerse ScienceDirect redesigned article page, with a new layout including a navigational pane and an optimized reading middle pane.

The Article of the Future project- an ongoing initiative aiming to revolutionize the traditional format of the academic paper in regard to three key elements: presentation, content and context.

Learn what we are doing and why by viewing the video below.

Last year, we introduced you to the Article of the Future project along with prototypes in 7 scientific areas. To achieve this evolution of the traditional research article, a three-pane article view has been proposed, which separates navigation (left pane) and value-added enhancements (right pane) from the core article (middle pane). Find out more in our About section.


The Article of the Future project has realized another milestone with this implementation across all full text articles in SciVerse ScienceDirect.

The middle pane features the full text with interactive applications like Google Maps in addition to static map images. The left pane displays a table of contents for easy navigation, with clickable section headers and thumbnails of images and tables. Experience it here.
