See their press release on the launch, here. Excerpt:
Incorporating input from 100 medical students, clinicians, senior consultants, medical researchers and top academics from all over the world, TheLancet.com is built with industry-leading web technologies such as J2EE, Spring, Ajax and MarkLogic XML database functionality to create a fast and intuitive interactive online resource. TheLancet.com has been developed using best-practice Agile processes, resulting in a lean and efficient site that delivers an optimal user experience.
We’re proud to have such a classic journal (founded in 1823) now deployed on MarkLogic Server.
As a complete aside, for trivia fans, whilst watching Young Frankenstein (inexplicably one of my five year old’s favorite movies), I noticed that Gene Wilder (Dr. Frankenstein) was reading none other than The Lancet during his improbable train ride through the US and Transylvania.
