[System modification in 2006]
In 2006, CiNii functions have been expanded as follows in order to offer better services (some will be launched in 2007).

1. The CiNii website has a new design that enables users to navigate faster and easier.
  - In the detailed display pages, users can search by authors' names or keywords, or see the table of contents by clicking links.
  - Full text documents can be displayed with just a click.
  - New URL enables an easy link to certain article information.
2. Limiting searches to results containing the full text of a document is now possible.
3. Links to link resolvers or library OPACs, and links from link resolvers (OpenURL format) are now available.
4. Exporting function for bibliographic management software (EndNote, RefWorks, etc.) has been added.
5. Mutual links between the Japana Centra Revuo Medicina (Ichushi) are now available.
6. Detailed information pages including abstracts are available for everyone.
7. We are planning to expand the statistics available for institutions with the fixed-price contact.
