@Katrine: This resource looks very intersting. Now we just need to find a way how to include information from this resource into RRAF. I think we can discuss this question next week in Brussels.

@Kamala: The filters are now working as you said. When you click on the filter it shows all entries with this filter. Then when you go back and click on other filter it resets all other filters and searches only by the selected (clicked) filter.

Statistics Page Links

As I noticed the categories within "RRAF statistics" are now all linked. That is a very convenient function. However, I have encountered some difficulties with it.
When I click on e.g. Sweden (to find only entries from Sweden) it then shows me all Swedish entries (good so far). However, when I then go back and click on e.g. status "in progress", it shows me only Swedish entries that are in progress. The filter is not reset. I believe it to be more useful if the filter were reset every time one selects any of the options within "RRAF statistics". I hope this is possible.
Search engine updated  
Darko Gavrić  16. June 2010 at 11:23
We have updated RRAF search engine with some additional features. Now it is possible to select which part of road resarch information is included into search (title, abstract, full text, keywords). You can also select if you want all words (if there are more than one) inclued in results, or one word is enough. Searching by exact phrase is also possible.
Statistics page added

Today we added special subpage that displays statistic of RRAF entries according to different paramteres. Page can be found under RRAF > rraf statistic
