The Smart Article: Introducing new and enhanced article tools for chemistry content
We’ve been working to improve your experience using and reading journals. As a result of research with academic and industrial chemists, Wiley is launching a number of new features across selected chemistry journals.
Watch 'The Smart Article in Action' and find out how these new features can aid your research. Simply click on the image or click here.
So what are the new features?
So how are they different from the general article tools on Online Library?
Features are designed specifically with the chemist in mind. We have looked at chemists’ workflows and information needs, and put in place tools to get you quickly to related chemical information when reading an article.
This first release of features focuses on providing quick information on the chemical compounds featured in an article, chemical terms in the text, and other key parts of the chemistry within the article.
These additions to the article will make your time reading and researching a more productive process for you, helping you to interact with the chemical content of the article in more seamless way, improving your reading experience, discovery of relevant information in other resources, and your interpretation of chemical research.
So what’s next?
This is the first stage of a multi-stage project to enhance discovery, availability, and interactive functionality in chemistry content on Wiley Online Library. Further additions and improvements will roll out through 2012 and 2013.
More information about the new features
At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a new ribbon. This is a feature you can turn on or off, either from the tool bar at the top right hand of the page or from the ribbon itself. The Compound Browser ribbon provides in-article navigation through the featured compounds, as well as any other compounds that have been identified with the article. These are ordered in alphanumerical order. The compound appears as its 2-D chemical structure representation.
The additional functionality of the Compound Browser lie in its links to the site of the featured compound in the journal article. The compound and the reaction it appears within are highlighted by a box in the text. There is also the facility to highlight all instances of this compound in the text and in the schemes.
Chemistry Term Highlighter
The Chemistry Term Highlighter, like the Compound Browser, can be toggled on and off, so you can tailor your reading experience. The default setting is off, to activate the Chemistry Term Highlighter click 'on' in the Article Tools.
The Chemistry Term Highlighter shows a number of chemical concepts or terms that would be commonly cited in lectures or used by students to locate key concepts. Terms include are reagents and catalysts, drug synomyms, chemical names and reaction types. Helpful when looking for a specific piece of information such as a named reaction, or to see if a certain type of catalyst was used in the synthesis.
Combined together, these new chemical information tools provide a chemical abstract and overview to articles in addition to a text summary. The additional linking will allow you to navigate directly to the site of the information in the article, speeding reading and information retrieval.
The featured compounds from an article now appear in a new tab alongside the abstract tab. They are presented as molecular structures and ordered as they appear in the article. With additional chemical information such as InChI, InChiKey, SMILES, molecular weight, molecular formulae and drug synonyms where available, these links enable instant look-up of common information about any compound.
An advantage for authors and for anyone searching by chemical compound will be that the chemical compound will be more discoverable by Google, allowing more ways to search for article and chemical information outside authors or key terms.

Enhanced Abstract Page – Now with Featured Compounds
The abstract page has been enhanced with the addition of featured compounds. This is added below the abstract information. This enables you to get straight to the essence of the research with a quick overview of all the featured compounds. Like the compound index, they are listed by their order in the article with key additional chemical information such as molecular weight, molecular number and the InChiKey.
Both the compound listing on the compound index and in the abstract tab have links directly from the compound to the places it appears in the article. This deep link means no more tabbing down, Control F, or scanning the pages for a compound’s location.
A feature on the full article, the Compound Record is a one stop resource for all essential information on the compound, accessed from the Compound Browser or the compound in the article. From any compound, either in the Browser or the deep links, the Compound Record can be launched. The Compound Record not only gives very detailed information on the compound itself but also includes links to instances of closely related chemicals and to articles in Wiley content in The Smart Article that featured that compound.
Tools to help you with your presentations and publications
The Smart Article functionality includes the ability to split reaction schemes that appear in the article into their individual compounds. The schemes can be downloaded as Powerpoint slides with citations included and the structures are downloadable as MOL files.
