Goal

To develop a web-based search functionality for CDC Science Clips, an online weekly bibliographic digest featuring scientific articles and publications that are shared with the public health community.

Summary + Outcome

The Science Clips search solution leverages CDC WordPress for a responsive design and Data.CDC.gov for data hosting and retrieval. Users have the ability to search the articles by title, abstract, author name, subject heading, publication title, published year, and article type. Further metrics regarding the number of times each article is mentioned in news outlets, social media, and other electronic communication platforms are provided through Altmetric and are accessible by users.
