Feature of the Week: Choose the number of publications you want to export

BibSonomy offers many export formats (currently 46 formats, you can find a list of all export formats here) for your stored publications. Sometimes you only want to export the latest 5 or 10 publications and not the whole list. In the past you had to add a parameter to the url manually (e. g. by appending ?items=10) or manipulate the parameter to limit the number of publications. In the last release we have added buttons to our export pages to help you with this task.

On every BibSonomy page that lists publications you can get to the export page of the currently displayed publications by hovering over the options icon that you will find on the top right of the list.

In the appearing menu the link labeled "more" takes you to the export page:

On the export page you can now use the radio buttons (red box) to set the number of publications you want to export (e. g. 10 publications). You can choose between 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 1000 publications:

After choosing the number of publications you can select the export format from the drop down list above or the links below.

I hope this new feature makes it easier to export publications from BibSonomy.

Happy exporting and tagging!
