Following up on my earlier posts here about the structured search technologies OpenSearch and SRU, I wanted to reference three recent posts on our web publishing blog Nascent which discuss our new nature.com OpenSearch service:

1. Service
Describes the new nature.com OpenSearch service which provides a structured resource discovery facility for content hosted on nature.com.
2. Clients
Points to a small gallery of demo web clients for nature.com OpenSearch which all use the text-based JSON interface.
3. Widgets
Introduces the new nature.com search desktop widgets which interface with the nature.com OpenSearch service via an RSS feed. (See also the screencast posted to YouTube.)

We hope that this new search service will prove to be useful and may also provide a model for other implementations.
