Lens, pioneered by eLife, to be piloted by six additional publishers on HighWire


(6 November 2014, Cambridge, UK & Redwood City, CA, USA) Lens, an open-source tool introduced by eLife to make reading articles online easier, is being piloted in journals from six publishers on the HighWire platform.

The Journal of Biological Chemistry, The Plant Cell, Journal of Lipid Research, and mBio® are among the journals introducing the Lens viewing experience to readers this fall. First introduced by eLife in 2013, Lens makes reading scientific articles on-screen easier by making it possible to explore figures, figure descriptions, references, and more – without losing your place in the article text.
