Responsive Design is Coming!
​​SCCM and Wolters Kluwer are pleased to announce that an improved reader experience, known as responsive design, is in the process of being implemented, and will be in place in the next few weeks. Responsive design will allow access to the journal on all devices, whether Apple or Android, and will give you as the reader a one-stop location to view valuable journal content on your preferred device. As part of this move to responsive design, the journal iPad app has been discontinued. Readers who already have the app on their device with issues will be able to retain it on their iPad – but no new issues will be published to the app and it will not be downloadable from the App Store.
