In order to keep pace with the continuing advances in web technology, PubMed Central has launched PubReader, an alternative web presentation that offers another, more reader-friendly view of the articles in the PMC archive.
Designed particularly for enhancing the readability of PMC journal articles on tablet and other small screen devices, PubReader can also be used on desktops and laptops and from multiple web browsers. For more information visit http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/about/pubreader/.
