Key features: content specific features
Note – moving beyond prototypes:
This website presents a number of prototype articles that were created in an early phase of the Article of the Future journey. Many of the innovations showcased here have now found their way into Elsevier journals, and online publishing platforms like ScienceDirect, through the Content Innovation program. If you are publishing with an Elsevier journal, please take a look in the Guide for Authors or journal homepage to see what innovative features are available to you to present your work with maximum impact!
Research Highlights consist of a short collection of bullet points that convey the core findings of the article.
A Graphical Abstract summarizes the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership online.
Graphical Animated Abstracts
A Graphical Animated Abstract is an extended version of a Graphical Abstract, which supports some simple dynamic behavior.
In a short Video Abstract (of maximum 5 minutes), authors present main findings of their research in an informal manner.
Please use the “Video abstract” tab above the abstract to view the video.
Google Maps provide interactive access to the supplementary geospatial data and are usually hidden behind the original black and white figure.
Please use the “Interactive map” button beneath the figure caption to activate the map.
Movies are supplementary video material or computer graphics animations integrated as part of the article. Computer graphics animations are normally hidden behind the original article figure.
Please use the “Play video” button beneath the figure caption to view the movie.
Interactive Charts allow quick and intuitive access to the underlying data, and are usually hidden behind the original black and white figure. Depending on the data provided, you can access various functionalities:
- Apply crosshairs
- Show/hide data series
- Switch between linear and logarithmic scales
- Read pick values by moving the cursor over the curve
- Shift the Reference Potential Scale
- Access underlying mathematical formulas
Please use the “Interactive chart” button beneath the figure caption to activate the charts.
Interactive Venn Diagrams
Venn diagrams comprise overlapping circles. The interior of the circle symbolically represents the elements of the set, while the exterior represents elements which are not members of the set.
Please use the “Interactive chart” button beneath the figure caption to activate the diagram.
Interactive Statistical Charts
Interactive Statistical Charts allow the reader to view the results of statistical analysis and to interact with the underlying statistical data.
Please use the “Interactive chart” button beneath the figure caption to activate the chart
Interactive Tables convert the data containing in original article tables to their graphical representation.
Please use the “Chart” button beneath the figure caption to view the chart.
Interactive Plates allow the reader to navigate through composite image plates or panels and to zoom in single high resolution images.
Please use the “Interactive plate” button beneath the figure caption to activate the plate.
Interactive Tree Diagrams
Interactive Tree Diagrams are branching diagrams showing the inferred evolutionary relationships among various biological species or other entities based upon similarities and differences in their physical and/or genetic characteristics.
Please use the “Interactive graph” button beneath the figure caption to activate the tree. Click on any of the tree branches to view the underlying statistical data.
MathJax Formula Rendering
The MathJax Formula Display renders original LaTeX code (or MathML) into web compatible math symbols.
Accessible via the left navigation bar of the original article, the Diagonal Reader displays its extended summary in the middle pane and figures in the right sidebar.
