Example text

These deviations from the past include multimedia centers, social media, links to most-​cited and most-​viewed articles, links to related articles, links to databases, image albums, abstracts of abstracts, summaries aimed at a general audience, supplemental information omitted from print articles, reader statistics, reader commentary, educational videos, exhibitions of visually striking images, interactive visuals, experimental results in video form, audio and video abstracts, and rotatable 2D and 3D animations of microscopic structures.

More to the point, they are as different from the print version as black-​and-​white silent movies shot with a stationary camera are different from talking color movies shot with a handheld digital camera. As a result, the experience of “reading” the scientific literature has been transformed in important ways. Readers do not only read text; they also point and click to access a host of related materials (databases, other articles, author biographies, and pictures), rotate 3D structures, interact with graphs and tables, zoom in and out of maps, watch videos of computer simulations and events as they occurred in the laboratory or field, listen to authors talk about their research, share articles they like with friends, and comment upon claims they question.

Readers can thus follow their own hyperlink paths, employing the original article in ways wholly unimagined by the author.
