I missed this. Thank you for bringing it to may attention. "Many eyes make bugs shallow."

Publishers are increasingly storing such data in article metadata as well, so in the long run, I expect this kind of searching on publications will become easier.
Yes, this approach is something that has also been brought to my attention.
