American Chemical Society (ACS) has begun a major mobile-oriented initiative for its publications:

Mobile Table of Contents (TOC)

The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on browsing Tables of Contents.

Mobile Article

The goal of this beta project is to create the most useful and enjoyable mobile experience possible. Specifically, this project focuses on formatting an article for viewing on a mobile device.

Supported Devices

All mobile devices with a web browser should be able to view both the Mobile TOC and the Mobile Article, but the full functionality of the Mobile TOC is limited to more modern mobile web browsers that have JavaScript turned on.

It started with JACS (Journal of the Amer Chem Soc) Beta.
