Project Muse – New Features

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

The new features are:

- A 'Search this Journal' search box. This search box appears on each journal's home page, on the Table of Contents (TOC) of each issue, and on each article. 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.
