Abstract

This project focused on improving the website housing the Scientific American database, addressing lingering problems from older versions of the site. The project group re-coded the website from scratch, fixing lingering issues from the older website, including missing data and security concerns. The group then analyzed nine other database websites, both small and large, to determine what makes an effective database and applied that knowledge to improving the SciAm database.
