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).

This first examle, we only looko at 10 results

out <- highplos(q='alcohol', hl.fl = 'abstract', rows=10)
highbrow(out)
highbrow1

highbrow1

But it works quickly with lots of results too

out <- highplos(q='alcohol', hl.fl = 'abstract', rows=1200)
highbrow(out)
highbrow2

highbrow2
