Proquest New Platform

The all-new ProQuest platform is designed to deliver the right content, in the right place, at the right time.

Based on customer feedback, the Results page is built with the best of what you love—with exciting features and functionality found in many of our unparalleled resources, plus much more.

From simple to advanced searches, users can see the big picture across format types as well as modify search options to full-text content and/or scholarly journals (1). Helpful suggestions are provided by ProQuest Smart Search (3).

Users can set up alerts, create RSS feeds, and save searches in My Research (2) as well as cite and export references plus email (4)—all from the Results page.

The results list uses icons to indicate the content format at a glance (5) and Full Text PDF and Citation icons—plus check boxes (9) to mark items to save, print, or share via email or social networking. Optional hit-term highlighting makes it easy to scan results quickly (7). And now, users can preview the content without ever leaving the Results page via a light box (8)! In addition, images—such as tables, charts, and more—are provided right in the results with links to the image in context in the article (10).

With the cool new collapsible sidebar (6), users can quickly sort and narrow results by source type, subject heading, date, etc. And the visual date trail histogram shows the content that is available according to a range of dates.

The enhanced Results page is just one example of how the all-new ProQuest platform is creating the best search and discovery experience in the industry.
