Online Article Reboot - Rethinking Science's online research articles

This project focuses on rethinking how our articles are presented to online readers and offers some alternative approaches in layout, functionality, and utility. We are starting with one research paper as a blank canvas on which to experiment with some new features. Please have a look – and give us your comments, wish lists, and criticisms.
