ScienceOpen Search and Discovery Survey

The ScienceOpen platform contains over 10 million article records, and is growing fast. It is therefore essential for us to develop tools to support rapid overview of the most relevant information, as well as discovery features to feed curiosity and new ideas.Our first step has been to create an open citation network from the Open Access content available to us.The citation numbers do not claim to be comprehensive, but they do allow an accurate ranking of citation information on the site. Please take a minute to let us know what you like and where we can do better! 

The below survey is structured in two parts. The first part concerns the search functions on ScienceOpen. Questions are proceeded by images from the website. Please visit www.scienceopen.com and test out the search functions.

The second part of the survey concerns the discovery function on individual article homepages on ScienceOpen. After you're finished, please answer the questions below.

Thank you for providing your valuable feedback on the new search and discovery features on ScienceOpen! We look forward to reading your suggestions and updating our tools to better serve you!
