Filters

Open Access
If are interested in Open Access (OA) publications on ScienceOpen, you can easily filter your search to return only those results. Simply click on ‘Add Filter’ below the search(box), then click on ‘Open Access’ and hit the ‘Search’ button. Your results now include exclusively OA records.

Preprint Filter

To help users find preprints, searches on ScienceOpen can be filtered to look up only preprints or to exclude them if you are looking for peer-reviewed literature. Our preprint records come directly from Crossref or arXiv.

To select only preprints on ScienceOpen, simply click on the ‘Preprint’ filter and then click/hit ‘Search’ again. This will restrict your returned search results accordingly. You can then further sort by:

  • Altmetric score

  • Cited by count
  • Date of publication
  • View count
  • Relevance

Save and export searches

Save search

The ‘Save search’ button enables you to be up to date with the latest content added to the platform with just one click. ScienceOpen is integrating thousands of articles to the database every day. By saving your searches, you also save time and can directly access new and previously (un)read articles in your field(s) of interests.

Export search results

ScienceOpen’s search engine offers a lot of flexibility thanks to its sort and filter options. You can not only save your filtered and sorted search results but also export them or any other article list on ScienceOpen as references in one of these three formats: EndNote, BibTex, and Reference Manager (RIS). These formats are easily integrated with your reference management systems. You can export up to 200 citations at a time.

Export citation

On top of any articles list, each ScienceOpen article, across our 43 million records, has an ‘Export citation’ button. You can export any individual ScienceOpen article to your reference manager. Just like with exporting your search queries, the articles are exported in either EndNote, BibTex, or RIS format.
