Open Access: New Search and Discovery Capabilities Now Available on ScienceOpen
From a ScienceOpen Blog Post:
At ScienceOpen, we’ve just upgraded our search and discovery platform to be faster, smarter, and more efficient. A new user interface and filtering capabilities provide a better discovery experience for users. ScienceOpen searches more than 27 million full text open access or article metadata records and puts them in context. We include peer-reviewed academic articles from all fields, including pre-prints that we draw from the arXiv and which are explicitly tagged as such.
Some new features of the ScienceOpen search include a breakdown of results in the left-hand bar on the basis of collections, journals, publishers, keywords and disciplines to help refine a search. These topical groupings are central components of the research context and can provide short-cuts for academics. Publishers and journals can now also be searched directly and results dynamically filtered by citations, Altmetric score, usage and more.
On a daily basis new content from publishers and major aggregation sources are added, so once researchers have found the right parameters, they can save their search and return to it as often as they want.
