ProQuest Interface (www.proquest.com) – 2nd Round of A/B Testing Extended to June 24

We will be running an A/B test on the ProQuest interface on June 24 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST. The purpose of this test is to gather analytics and validate improvements planned for the new user interface.

In the coming months, we will introduce a re-designed ProQuest user interface, which will provide your users a richer and much more engaging research experience. We'll be communicating more details on these enhancements soon, so subscribe to this blog to learn more.

We will be running one more A/B test on June 24 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST, to gather additional data. Thank you for your patience during this time. The purpose of this test is to gather analytics and validate some of the improvements planned for the new user interface. 

What does this mean for me and my users?

A/B testing is a randomized experiment method used by web developers to test different versions of a website (or other elements) in real time. In this case, 20% of traffic will be diverted to the beta version of the ProQuest interface during the testing period, while all others (80%) will see the current interface. 

In addition, if you would like to continue running the beta ProQuest interface at your institution, please email Justin Guinup.

Thank You,

The ProQuest platform team
