Mètode journal has launched a new website, aiming to strengthen its position on the Internet. This new site is intended to promote wider dissemination of the articles published in the journal’s paper version, as well as to create the digital version’s own content through weekly news updates. Thus, Mètode makes way for Web 2.0, backed up by the work being carried out through Twitter and Facebook social networks, where the magazine already has over 2,000 followers.
One of the most outstanding novelties of the new website lies in its design, which is more visual and dynamic than before. The articles are complemented by graphics and images that enrich both the text and the final composition. The new web design makes it easier to navigate the different sections and browse articles posted on the website, facilitating the search by admitting different keywords like author, section or issue.
Mètode’s new website provides versions in Catalan and Spanish, and now also offers content translated into English too, thus greatly expanding its target audience. Also, the web gives everyone the opportunity to share content on social networks as well as to download articles in pdf format, just as they appear in the journal’s printed edition.
With this update, Mètode’s website has undergone a major transformation, both visually and in terms of design and content accessibility. User-friendly navigation and easy access to articles helps us in our mission to bring science closer to the public, assisted through our web and social networks.

To further its interest in boosting science communication on the Internet, this year Mètode journal has sponsored the first edition of the Premio Prisma award for the best popular science website, organized by the Casa de las Ciencias de La Coruña (La Coruña House of Science), and which has been awarded to the virtual museum «Leyendo el libro de la vida» (“Reading the book of life”) this time round.
