Article view

The article view is your view of the dictionary content. Article view can be reached by search, browse or a direct link.

Logged-in users see the full article view, non-subscribers see the article preview. The Sample Article allows non-subscribers to see the features of the full article view.

1. Article preview (for non-subscribers)

The article preview shows:

  • a table of contents for the article
  • the article's abstract
  • the keywords
  • related articles (See Also)
  • how to cite the article

If the article was reached through search, Next, Previous and Back to results options are available. Hit highlighting is not turned on by default, but can be turned on using the button to the top right.

The Bookmark button can be used to bookmark the article in My Dictionary. You will need to log in to your subscription and My Dictionary account to do this. Alternatively you can add a link to the article to social bookmarking sites Connotea and by clicking on the links in the Share This box on the left-hand side of the screen for every article.

The Print button produces a printable version of the article preview.

2. Full article view (for subscribers)

The full article view contains all of the subsections and bibliography of the article in addition to all of the article preview elements.

Hit-highlighting is enabled by default if the full article view is reached from search. It can be disabled using the button to the top-right.

The Bookmark button will save a bookmark of the current article to My Dictionary. You will need to log in to your subscription and My Dictionary account to do this (if not logged in already)

The Print button produces a printable version of the full article.

3. Hit-highlighting

Hit highlighting shows the terms that caused an article to match your search.

Hit highlighting is enabled by default on the full article view. It can be turned on or off using the Hit Hightlighting button to the top-right.

Note that sometimes your search may have matched because of fuzzy searching. See Search help for further details. Your search may also have matched metadata fields that are not displayed in the article view.

4. Mathematics (MathML)

Mathematical terms in Articles are displayed using MathML or images. See MathML help for details on how this works and how to change it.

5. OpenURL

If you have OpenURL configured in your account, OpenURL links will appear in the bibliography. OpenURL allows you to search your library's online database for titles matching the bibliographic references.

The resolver will be set up by your library administrator to search for the resource in your library's holdings. For a book or a journal, you may then have the option to send a query to your library's online catalogue. Also for online journals, you may then have the option to check whether the abstract and/or full text of the article is available to you via your library's subscription.
