Sample 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.

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