# Faceted and highlighted searches

#### 2021-02-23

In addition to searchplos() and related searching functions, there are a few slightly different ways to search: faceting and highlighted searches. Faceting allows you to ask, e.g., how many articles are published in each of the PLOS journals. Highlighting allows you to ask, e.g., highlight terms that I search for in the text results given back, which can make downstream processing easier, and help visualize search results (see highbrow() below).

install.packages("rplos")
library('rplos')

### Visualize highligted searches

This first examle, we only looko at 10 results

out <- highplos(q='alcohol', hl.fl = 'abstract', rows=10)
highbrow(out)

But it works quickly with lots of results too

out <- highplos(q='alcohol', hl.fl = 'abstract', rows=1200)
highbrow(out)
