JEN website improvements for mobile usage outshine app

In August, ENA announced that its publishing partner, Elsevier, which prints and distributes the Journal of Emergency Nursing, will discontinue updating the JEN app for smart devices to focus its attention on enhancing the mobile-friendly functionality of the journal website,

In consultation with ENA, Elsevier plans to use new mobile technology and improved infrastructure to enhance the reader experience when using native mobile browsers such as Safari and Google Chrome. The already responsive site design that includes articles, tables of content, search features, registration pages and advertising will soon feature improved layouts that create an even more efficient-looking display on any device.

Elsevier’s decision comes after several years of steady decline in app use for all its journals, while mobile usage on ScienceDirect and its journal websites has increased year after year.

As of Sept. 1, the JEN app will be unavailable for download. Elsevier will stop issuing updates to maintain the app’s functionality on Jan. 1. Although existing users will see new editorial content appear on the JEN app, they can expect a slow decrease in usability starting in 2021.

ENA encourages members to add the JEN website to their mobile devices’ home screens for quick access to the latest research. For iOS users, open in Safari, tap the “Share” icon (open box with arrow pointing up), and then tap “Add to Home Screen.” For Android users, open the site in Chrome, tap the ellipsis (three dots) in the upper right corner of the screen, and then tap “Add to homescreen.”
