Release 5.12.0

DOI-based OpenURL linking for scholarly works, links to other scholarly data sources, search in references of scholarly works and more!

- DOI-based OpenURL for scholarly works implemented. This feature links you from a citation listed in the Lens to a full-text that may be available through your library subscriptions using the WorldCat registry. In future stages, we plan to add OpenURL links to scholarly works without a DOI and explore options to host a registry of institutional OpenURL resolvers.
- In the article summary view, you can now explore other links to scholarly data sources.
- In the references/citation tab of a scholarly work, you can view the references as a scholarly list, make it a collection, and analyze or export it.
- In the scholarly results page, there is now a "Clear" button for each filter to enable you to clear that filter easily.
- In patent search results page, you can now filter by priority date in addition to filing and publication dates. Also, you can sort your results by Priority date.
- We added notifications when a query contains invalid characters.

- Fix intermittent stylesheets loading in Microsoft Edge
- Fix graphs in analysis view breaking across columns (user's feedback)
- Fix homepage loading issues
