Announcing launch of Release 8.1.2 of RSC Publishing Platform
17 May 2011
This update provides new and improved functionality for the RSC Publishing Platform.
Improved Simple Search
A new drop-down enables different types of simple searches to be accessed from every page on the Platform.
The current options are to search
- Full Text (default)
We intend to add a structured ‘Reference Search’ option to the simple search in the near future. These options provide access to a more focused simple search functionality. For more complex searches, such as author searches, the Advanced Search is recommended.
New Advanced Search
The layout of the Advanced Search
has been improved and all the functionality is now accessible from one page. Helpful ways to apply search logic have been added, whilst retaining Boolean logic in the main search dialogues. Following user feedback, we have added the ability to search within the reference section of articles, for example if you want to find which RSC articles have cited a particular author or article.
When searching within a journal using the Advanced Search
, we now show the full title of the journal, rather than the abbreviated title.
Improvements to Article Pages
The layout of the article pages for journals has been updated to add the dates of publication. The layout of the page has been tidied by making the download section a ‘floating section’ whilst keeping navigation clustered on the right.
A note has been added to the ‘Cited by’ tab to make users aware that the data is collected from a CrossRef Cited-by
service, explaining both the short delay in fetching the data and any differences between the citations found compared with other citation tracking services.
Other enhancements and bug fixes
- The print view has been improved for contents listings (issue listings and advance articles).
- The setting for viewing graphical abstracts should now be retained during navigation (Expand All/Collapse All).
