Timespan

Use the Timespan options to specify the time period that you wish to search.

index

  • All years – Searches all years in your current subscription. This is the default timespan setting.

  • Latest 5 years – Searches the current year and the last five cover journal publication years. For example, selecting this option would be equivalent to searching publication years from 2008 to 2012.

  • Year to date – Searches the current year -- only records with a cover date of the current year are included in the results.

index

  • Latest 4 weeks – Searches the last four weeks of data that we entered in the product database. This may include "early arrivals" or late arrivals" in the results.

  • Latest 2 weeks – Searches the last two weeks of data that we entered in the product database. This may include "early arrivals" or late arrivals" in the results.

  • Latest (current) week – Searches the most recent week of data that we entered in the product database. This may include "early arrivals" or late arrivals" in the results.

Did You Know ... An "early arrival" may be a January item arriving early in November. A "late arrival" may be a December item arriving in February?

Note 1: If you wish to search for journals with a cover date older than 12 months, then we suggest you select the All Years or Latest 5 Years timespan.

Note 2: Take note that the Biological Abstracts product database is updated semi-monthly (24 times per year).

index

  • From YYYY-MM-DD To – Searches a range of database years based on publication year. The default value is generally the first coverage year to the date when the product database was last updated.

Calendar

Clicking in the From field displays a calendar from which you can select a date from which you can begin your search. The To field always displays the current date unless you display the calendar and select an earlier date.

index

Use Processing Date instead of Publication Date

Select the check box if you want the product to sort the results of your search by the processing date. If you leave the check box blank, the product sorts the results of your search by the publication date.

When you select the check box, the product displays processing date information. For example:

Timespan = JAN 12, 2012 to APR 20, 2012 (Processing Date).
