Over the past few weeks, we have worked to refresh our home page. This is to help our users find what they are looking for easily and navigate Sciety smoothly. The new home page puts the reader at the centre of our process, ensuring you can discover evaluations from our diverse range of groups on the application.
The design provides a versatile set of pathways to identify the things that matter to you; new evaluations, our blog, newsletter and discovering new groups. You can easily register or log in to customise these experiences, follow groups and save articles.
What we have sought to emphasise is our belief and support of openness and transparency. We have used this new page to show that evaluations on our platform are available to everyone. This affirms our vision to become the home of public preprint evaluations.
This new design demonstrates the various ways in which users can customise their experiences on the platform. This is facilitated through better highlighting of the options to register, subscribe to our newsletter or search for articles, groups and evaluations to follow.
In redesigning this page we have concentrated on accessibility in an effort to make sure that ability is not a barrier to using our application. This is underscored in the use of plain language, straightforward sentences, fewer icons and support for multiple devices from mobile phones to screen readers.
We welcome feedback on this page as we want you, our users, to contribute to how you want the application to evolve. Look out for our new chat function coming soon which will enable you to give us feedback directly from any page.
