How does filtering affect the number of items displayed on tag overview pages?

Screenshot: Feature articles tagged with 'open access'

Filters on tag overview pages are designed to reduce the number of articles displayed and narrow the focus to content matching your specific interests.

As illustrated below (in example of 'feature article' filter activated on content tagged with 'open access'), activated filters can result in:

  • actual number of articles displayed in a tag overview (in example screenshot: 90)
    being less than
  • total articles associated with a specified tag (in example screenshot: 193)

Whenever this actual number of article displayed is less than total articles tagged, you should keep in mind that you are viewing a sub-set of content available.

As described in our FAQ explaining how to re-set filters, it's easy to remove filters so that you can review all content associated with a tag.
