Paperity, the first multidisciplinary aggregator of Open Access journals and papers indexing over 1 million articles, has released today an Advanced Search feature to help readers find relevant literature and follow new publications on a given subject.
The Advanced Search supports many types of constraints: search by keyword, journal, ISSN, DOI, language, geographical location, article length, publication date, author affiliations, authors count. It provides faceting and generates RSS/Atom feeds on arbitrary search queries, making it possible to follow new publications that match a given query, or follow new articles in a given journal (“ToC feeds”). Paperity indexes now 30% of newly published Gold / Hybrid OA articles, and the Advanced Search feature will greatly improve their discoverability and boost their readership.
For example, here is a list of papers containing “open access” in either the title or the abstract:
And here is the corresponding RSS/Atom feed that can be added to any RSS/Atom reader (like Feedly) and used to track new papers that discuss open access:
We hope Paperity’s Advanced Search will become an important discovery tool for scholars and academics. We invite you to give it a try!
