ScienceOnline migrating to Web 2.0

On Tuesday, 16 November 2010, the Science website, including all weekly article and issue content of the journal, Science, will transition to the new platform.

The change is designed to put Science’s website into better alignment with industry standards. It will offer a more flexible, competitive platform for developing new features and delivering high-quality content to users in the increasingly diverse contexts that matter to them.
Please note this is fundamentally a back-end transformation to convert our content into an industry-standard markup approach based on the XML article format designed by the National Library of Medicine. However, users will experience some minor cosmetic adjustments when using the site.
Due to the large technical scope of this project we need to be prepared for the possibility of some bugs, particularly in older (pre-2005) content, when the site launches. Initially the site will be slower than usual. This is to be expected but will be corrected as the site transitions to the new platform.
If you encounter any difficulties during transition to the new platform, please send an email detailing the problem to
