New feature: Shareable reports

When you run a search of Overton's policy document database, you can view the results in a list or as a summary report which shows you the characteristics of the set of documents. For example, which policy sources published the documents, which countries these sources are from, and which funders, institutions and publishers are associated with the cited research.

You can now share these summary reports publicly so you can collaborate with colleagues who do not have an Overton account.

See this live example.

To create a shareable report link, go to your search results and click 'See Report':
