Languages and counties are self explanatory. While languages are only useful to find information you can read easily counties can be useful for finding information from different perspectives.
Research areas like Web of Science Categories will change every time depending on the original search terms. The first 100 by record count are shown. Like with categories, it is possible to analyze these results further to understand the most common or most relevant areas of study.
The Difference between the Categories and Research Areas is how that categories are typically a single word and concept but Research Areas are more complex.
Research Areas WOS Catagories
Biochem Molecular Bio --> Biochem & Molecular Bio,
Biochem Research Methods
Publication years are self explanatory, they are organized by the most prolific to the least and multiple years can be selected to create a time range.
Open access articles are free of all restrictions on access and free of many restrictions on use, e.g. copyright. Open access can be applied to all forms of published research output, including peer-reviewed and non peer-reviewed academic journal articles, conference papers, theses, etc.
