Search Results

When a Search finds one or more reviews, they are displayed on the Search results page.

Before you search:

Use the pull-down menus on the Simple, Advanced or Fielded search pages to determine how the search results (if any) are displayed:

Have results display part of the text of each review, or just show each citation alone while the review remains accessible by clicking its title; display from 5 to 100 citations per page of results, in ascending or descending order; and (advanced and fielded search only) determine how results are listed on the page (i.e. sorted alphabetically by author name, chronologically by publication date, etc.)

After you search:

The Search results page displays the first 10 reviews found by your search query, with additional results pages (if any) available by clicking the page number links at the bottom. Use the Display pull-down menu to change the number of reviews displayed on each page of results. Modify the settings of the Options pull-down menus at top of page to:

1. Narrow your search to a specific media type: change the setting of the first pull-down menu from All Media Types to (i.e.) journals, proceedings, books etc.

2. Sort the results differently by changing the setting of the middle pull-down menu.

3. Use the right-hand menu to sort in either ascending or descending order.

When ready to repeat the seach with these new Options menu settings, click the right-hand arrow.

Click the button Save This Search to add the search to your saved search alert profile. Click the Search Details button to look at your original search strategy.

For convenience, a new simple Search field displaying your latest query appears in the top right area of the screen: you can use it to quickly modify your query. For example, you can quickly narrow your search by adding a second search term and combining both terms with a Boolean AND.

Tip: If your search produces few results or no results at all, you might try broadening the search to scan All Media Types, or search a wider range of publication dates. You can also use it to enter fewer terms (or different terms) in the Query field.
