Enter an institution and/or place name from an author's address to search
for records based on the author's address. Note that common institution
and address terms such as Institute and University are abbreviated.
Because the Address field in the product includes all author addresses supplied
by the source document, use the SAME search operator to search for two or more
words that appear within the same address. For example:
Enter Novartis SAME Barcelona to search for documents in which
Novartis and Barcelona appear in the same address (to find
an author whose address is Norvartis in Barcelona).
Enter Harvard SAME Med to search for documents in which Harvard
and Med appear in the same address (to search for an author
whose address is Harvard Medical School).
Note that common institution and address terms such as Institute and
University are abbreviated. Abbreviations for certain institutions can
vary, especially if they are abbreviated in the source publication. To
be comprehensive, search for different abbreviations of the same institution.
New York Univ OR NYU finds records in which at least one
address includes New York Univ or NYU.
Oak Ridge Natl Lab OR ORNL finds documents in which at least
one address includes Oak Ridge Natl Lab or ORNL.
Using Address Abbreviations
Check the list of corporate and institution abbreviations
to see if an institution's name (for example, Centers for Disease Control) should
be abbreviated. Note that corporate and institutional names that do not appear
on this list may be abbreviated in the product if the address appears abbreviated
in the source publication.
Check the list of other address abbreviations to
see if any other part of the author's address, such as the street address or department/division
name, should be abbreviated.
Check the list of state and country
abbreviations for U.S. states and countries.
