In order to only display results which are open access, go to the bottom of the filters on the left-hand side, expand the 'Open Access' filter and select 'All OA' by clicking on 'Limit to'. When this filter is applied, only publications that are open access will appear in the results list. As with all filters, this can be done with a blank search, or along with a keyword search or abstract search, to display results in a particular area, and can also be combined with other filters.
