Filtering

The list can be filtered by author by simply clicking on the author's name on the publication list.

However, more complex filtering rules can also be set by clicking on "Filter".

You can define the first filter by selecting the relevant radio button, selecting the respective value you want and clicking on "Filter". This will take you back to the list of entries. if you want to further refine the filter, you can click again on "Filter", choose a new selection, and click on "Refine". The button "Undo" will remove the last filter you defined, and "Reset" will clear all filters.

Filtered lists can also be sorted and ordered as explained in the previous section.

Filters are persistent, and are kept even if you navigate away from the list. If you want to remove them and see the complete list again, you can click on the "Clear all filters" link on the top of the list.

Fields you can use to filter are:

  • Author
  • Type of Article
  • Term (not used)
  • Year of publication
  • Keyword

Example

As an example if you wished to find all articles which were published in 2009 you would carry out the following steps:

  1. Click on the filter tab
  2. Click the radio button next to Year and use the dropdown list to find 2009
  3. Click Filter

You would now have all articles published in 2009 listed.

Say you now wanted to refine the filter to show all articles in published in 2009 and authored by Beauchamp:

  1. Click on Filter
  2. Click on the radio button next to author and find Beauchamp, A. J
  3. Click Refine

Now the list will only show articles published in 2009 AND authored by A.J Beauchamp.
