For the last three years PEP has been developing a modern new interface with many extra features and the capability for further feature development. The development was necessitated by a commercial takeover of our existing provider who served us extraordinarily well for twenty years and have also been very helpful in the changeover.
It is now available in Beta – meaning there may still be some rough edges and not all features are fully operational. Once the Beta phase has proved that everything works well enough, the existing platform will close.
About the new PEP-Web 2021 Platform…
The new platform combines a set of interacting software developments written in open-source code. It is, therefore, available to other publishers to develop.
The key thing to notice in this modern version is that there are improved search, browse and refine features, opportunities for personalisation so that users will be able to configure the colour scheme, type sizes, the language of instructions, etc., and to receive suggestions for articles fitting their search pattern. They will also be able save articles for later reading. You will not that users are offered expert picks of the day, a graphic of the day, a video selection of the day, etc. These new feature are designed to showcase PEP’s contents and to remind users of classic articles from across the field. Further features will follow.
