Project MUSE has two new features that help users more easily locate articles relevant to their research.
The new features are:

The 'Search This Journal' feature enables a user to quickly check all issues of the journal in MUSE, with a single search, for all articles in that journal pertaining to a particular subject.
- Summaries (abstracts) for articles. MUSE now provides a link for the summary of each article. The Summary links appear on the TOCs and in search results, next to the article format options of HTML and PDF.
