Results

View the results of your search in an abbreviated record format. At the top of the page appears the search statement that retrieved the results, including the selected timespan and any selected data restrictions such as document types and languages.

All bibliographic records that appear on the Results page are source records. Source records are from items (journals, books, conferences, and patents) that we have indexed in a product. Every source record has a Full Record that you can access. Moreover, you can add every source record to your Marked List.

If you have OpenURL links enabled, a button is provided for every item to access the links resolver which can link you to the Full Text.

Some links may not work in a product database. In a few instances, you may receive an error message because the selected record is not a standard work and it does not appear on the publisher’s Web page. For example, the document may be a Preface or an Obituary. In other instances, the author of the document is Anonymous and no link is created.

For more information about managing Links, go to the Thomson Reuters Links Web site.

Please read OpenURL Resolver for more information about this feature

index

Lemmatization

The product automatically applies lemmatization rules in Topic and Title search queries.

However, the search engine never applies lemmatization rules to terms in any category in a Refine Results search. When you perform a Refine Results search for a specific category, you may get a Refine count that is less than the initial Results count. This occurs because lemmatization is applied to terms in the Results count but not to terms in the Refine count.

See Lemmatization Search Rules for more information.

Analyze Results

Use the Analyze Results feature to use advanced Refine Results options.

index

Search within Results

This search will return only those records in the original set that contain the topic term(s) you enter. The search terms may appear in any order within a retrieved record.

To search for an exact phrase within the results, enclose the phrase in quotation marks. For example, the query "South America" will only retrieve records that contain this exact phrase.

All searches are added to the Search History table.
