COVID-19 Research Viewer and many, many other updates

Posted by: Todd Everett

Hot on the heels of our big Article Shelf Browser release, we're back with lots of improvements for you across the Article Galaxy product line. This release includes new and improved features for COVID-19 Research Viewer, Bibliogo, Article Galaxy Widget, Article Galaxy News Reader, Search & Discovery, and Clinical Trials Searcher. We also threw in some IE11 compatibility improvements.

Search & Discovery & Clinical Trials Searcher Gadgets

  • Both Gadgets now support deep link searching as demonstrated by the Article Galaxy News Reader links. If you'd like to build your own links (say, to share with colleagues) that open these Gadgets and run a query, here's the syntax:
    • Search & Discovery: https://www.reprintsdesk.com/landing/gdl.aspx?gid=193&query=[YOUR_QUERY_HERE]
    • Clinical Trials Searcher: https://www.reprintsdesk.com/landing/gdl.aspx?gid=21&query=[YOUR_QUERY_HERE]
  • Clinical Trials Searcher also got some UI attention and now has an improved design.
