BOSTON, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS)launched a major redesign and upgrade of its journal website. The redesign corresponds with JBJS's move to Silverchair Information Systems' (Silverchair) semantic web development platform, SCM6. The SCM6 platform enables JBJS to optimize its information
"Our readers' needs are changing, and we are dedicated to providing this critical content in ways most convenient to them," said Kent Anderson, CEO and publisher of JBJS. "We are also very excited about our new offerings – Case Connector and Essential Surgical Techniques – and believe these will have a significant impact on practice and ultimately on patient outcomes."
In addition to the redesign of its flagship journal site, JBJS is pleased to introduce two new products, also developed with Silverchair:
"We were enthusiastic about working with JBJS to develop these new products," said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. "As the first sites built on the SCM6 platform, we think they stand as great examples of the rapid deployment, product innovation, and portfolio integration enabled by a semantic architecture."
In addition to these products, enhanced features of these new sites include:
"The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery is changing the way readers can access our content, and we are among the first medical journals to adopt this kind of new technology," said Dr. Vernon T. Tolo, editor-in-chief. "We are excited to continue to be evolving and reaching our readers in new ways."
