RCN Publishing launches new mobile viewing facilities on ejournals platform

RCN Publishing (RCNP) announced today that it is enhancing mobile viewing capabilities on their e-journals platform. The site is being optimised to enable mobile viewing across all devices and platforms, to provide more convenient access to RCN Publishing content.

As technology continues to transform the clinical environment, nursing and medical practitioners and students increasingly refer to content via a broad range of devices, on-the-move. The new mobile viewing feature enables on the go access to leading nursing journals including Cancer Nursing Practice, Emergency Nurse, Learning Disability Practice, Mental Health Practice Nursing, Nursing Management, Nurse Researcher and Nursing Standard and others, delivering the latest research and information whenever it is most needed.

Articles are grouped together by year and issue, providing instant access for subscribers to all articles published in RCN Publishing journals, including the latest journal issue. Users will also be able to quickly access the current and previous issues of a journal through the “Quick Links” function and content can be filtered in many different ways for more convenient browsing. Other features that enhance the user experience include the ability to save articles, add articles to Favourites lists as well as download PDFs of articles that are available in that format.

Tony O’Rourke, Commercial Director, said, “Mobile-accessible content is no longer an added benefit that publishers provide their customers, it is expected to be an integral part of the product offering. The number of users accessing the Internet via mobile devices continues to grow substantially and researchers predict that mobile users will exceed desktop users in the not too distant future.

O’Rourke continues “From our own conversations with nursing and health practitioners, we know how much they need the ability to access information from their mobile devices in order to provide better patient care. Students and researchers appreciate the ability to access information so they can continue their studies wherever they happen to be. Through our new mobile viewing capabilities, we hope that we can serve our customers more efficiently and make the wealth of information we publish available whenever and wherever they need it.  Functionality will continue to develop over the coming months and we look forward to receiving comments from users.”

The new mobile site is now available. For more information about this release, please contact Tony O’Rourke, Commercial Director, RCN Publishing at institutions@rcnpublishing.co.uk.
