New WOS April 14 Release Notes

Author position filtering, Fast 5000 export, and expanded accessibility support.

Filter by author position on claimed researcher profiles

It is once again possible to filter a set of Core Collection publications in a researcher profile by the position that author appeared in the author list. The available filters are first, last, and corresponding. The counts correspond to the percentages shown in the metrics panel, and the actual count appears in the Publications header.



Export “Fast 5000” added

In response to user feedback, we’ve added the “Fast 5000” export format. This export option allows you to export basic bibliographic information for up to 5000 records at a time as a tab-delimited file.


Expanded accessibility support

Web of Science is committed to developing products that can be used by all people, including those with disabilities. We have been fixing major accessibility defects that had been identified in a third-party audit. Our updated accessibility roadmap can be seen here:

In addition to feedback provided by third-party experts, we have also been responding to customer feedback. As an example, a new audio clue has been added to notify users accessing via a screen reader to know when the page has completed loaded.



Thank you for your support and feedback. Together we will bring a better Web of Science to all.
