Welcome to the new MAS Context website

June 8, 2011

To coincide with the release of Conflict, the tenth issue of MAS Context, we are launching our new website. We are still adding some content here and there but you can see what things are going to look like. For those of you who are searching for our special issue, University Works, it has not been uploaded yet but no worries, it will be up soon.

New Features

We’ve have worked hard to create an active, responsive and graphics-driven web experience: more integrated image and text, clearer navigation, and a redesign that both resembles and enhances our print version. The goal? We want each issue to continue to have a life after we publish it, and for each article and contribution to continue to grow in real time.

  • Now you can move more easily between articles. They are still organized by issue on the right hand side of the page, but you can navigate by tag, name of contributor, issue… and cross-reference them, too. It’s all indexed so you can search the complete articles.
  • Now you can access the content on the website from any mobile device, tablet, or computer—however and wherever you want to read MAS Context. RSS feeds are also available, so add MAS Context to any newsreader. You can still download the PDF of any issue for free, but this new platform will allow access to the content in multiple ways.

Be part of the conversation

  • MAS Context wants to instigate the debate, but you can continue the conversation by adding your point of view via Comments, either to agree with what is said or to add another perspective. This is a live platform, so let’s make sure it lives.
  • You can share each article in a simple way through Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, and even Meneame for the Spanish folks that follow us. Go ahead and share your favorite articles with the rest of the world.

We are already seeing that people are revisiting articles that had been published in earlier issues, all the way back to our first issue More. Over a hundred contributions from our first 10 issues live online, so go ahead and explore the archives through the tags or main categories.

We hope you like the new website and enjoy new and old articles. Drop us an email if you like what you see, if you have suggestions about how to make the experience better, or just to say hi.
