Full Record Fields

NCBI

This button opens a new browser Web page that contains a table with NCBI resource names that link to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). This option is only available for records for which a PubMedID exists.

Visit the NCBI Web site to look for more information on a genome or nucleotide. Explore human genome resources or bring up a Map Viewer to browse the human genome sequence. Enhance your research and find detailed information about molecular biology, computational biology, and more.

index

Full Record Fields

Title

The full title of the journal article, conference proceeding, book, book chapter, and so on.

Note: A book chapter record is the title of the book chapter. The source is the title of the book. If the title and the source are the same, then it is always a book.

index

Author(s)

The names of all authors. You may see two versions of an author name in records of articles published in 2006 and later. Be aware that you must still search for an author by last name followed by one or more initials.

A superscript number may appear after an author's name. This means we have found an association between the author's name and the author's address. When you click the number link, the system takes you to the Addresses field where you can see the author's address.

In some cases, an author may be assigned more than one address and you will see more than one superscript number. In other cases, an author may not be assigned an address while other authors of the same article are assigned an address. This occurs when we cannot determine which address is associated with an author.

The product maintains the author / address association when you print, e-mail, save, and export records. In the Address field of your output document, look for the author's name before the address.

One-Click Search on Author Names

If a record for a particular linked author is included in a distinct author set, then clicking on that author name will retrieve all records in a set published by that author within the selected timespan. This feature allows you to narrow your search to only records published by the selected author within a particular author set.

However, if the record of an article is not in an author set, then the system performs a traditional Author search as performed from the Search page.

For example:

  1. You perform an Author search on Cagnin Z and set the Timespan to All Years. The product returns 86 articles published by Cagnin Z.

  2. You search for a specific article by Cagnin Z.

  3. You find the article and go to the Full Record page to review the article.

  4. You then click the linked Cagnin Z name that appears in the Author(s) field.

  5. You are taken to the Distinct Author Summary page and this author set contains 19 articles published by the author.

The new set of results is automatically added to the Search History table.

For more information about author sets, go to our Help page that describes the Author Search and Distinct Author Record Sets features.

index

One-click Search on Terms

A one-click search of a linked term in the Full Record will retrieve all records that contain that term (within the selected timespan) that exists in the product database.
