New JSTOR interface anticipated next week

JSTOR has been working on a new interface that is expected to debut next week. A note from their press release:

"We would like to provide you with an update on the approaching release of the new JSTOR platform. We are in final testing stages, and at this time we anticipate the new platform will replace the current JSTOR site during the week of March 17, 2008. We are excited about the new platform, which we believe will enhance navigation and ease of use, as well as provide more tools and capabilities for JSTOR users. The new system will also provide a more flexible foundation for future development, allowing us to more easily add new features and a greater array of scholarly content.

We urge you to continue to try out the preview of the new site before the end of this week, at which time we plan to close preview as we prepare for the
launch itself. Until then, you may access the preview, as well as up-to-date information about its status, via the JSTOR Sandbox, at http://sandbox.jstor.org."

Please feel free to take a look by following the sandbox link above.
