Science Editor Online Publication Design
We worked with the Council of Science Editors to create a standalone online journal experience, in combination with a brand refresh.
In tandem with a complete brand and print publication redesign, we created a best-in-class online journal for Science Editor, who had previously been posting their journal articles to their association website as PDFs. The redesign brought a whole new level of user-experience to CSE’s readers. We added the ability to browse by topics as well as issues, and a special early online section that houses richer content to appear online, complementing the print publication. Special collections allow Science Editor editorial staff to curate collections of articles on special topics of interest, and also house annual meeting reports, news, and member profiles. Robust search filters allow easy access, and ad placement brings in additional revenue. Issues and articles are easily downloaded as PDFs, and an issue table of contents for each issue reinforces the organization of the print edition.
A robust integration with Science Editor’s membership database allows readers to easily join CSE, unlocking access to gated subscriber-only content. The responsive, WordPress-driven website brings the publication to an even wider range of readers, on nearly any device, with prominent social sharing links to expand overall reach.
