Advanced Search Field Tags

Field tags enable you to search data fields within a record.

index

AD=Address

Searches for institution and/or place names in the Address field within a record, usually for the first named author of an article.

In many Web of Science records, there is an association between the author's name and the author's address. This is shown by a superscript number link that appears after the author's name on the Full Record page. When you click the number link, the system takes you to the Addresses field where you can see the author's address. 

See the Author(s) field Help topic for more information about this author/address association.

index

AU=Author

Searches for author names in the Author(s) field within a record.

Last names containing a space should be searched with and without the space to ensure that all relevant records are returned. For example:

  • AU=(De Marco* OR DeMarco*)
  • AU=(Van Hecke T* OR Vanhecke T*)

See Guidelines for Searching Names for more information about how to search for author names.

index

IS=ISSN

Searches the ISSN field within a record.

The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) searches for periodical publications such as journals and electronic publications. If a journal has both a print ISSN and an electronic ISSN, then both display in the Full Record. The format is four numbers, a hyphen (-), three numbers, and then a check character that may be a number or X.

index

IS=ISBN

Searches the ISBN field within a record.

The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) searches for books. It is a unique machine-readable identifier that marks a book unmistakably. The format is a 10-digit number that contains 3 hyphens (-). The last digit is a check character, which may be a number or an X. The position of the hyphens can vary for each ISBN identifier.

index

OO=Organization

A search on a preferred organization name returns all records that contain the preferred name. For example, a search on OO=Cornell Univ returns all records that contain this preferred organization name.

A search on a name variant returns all records that contain the variant. For example, a search on OO=Cornell Law Sch returns all records that contain this variant.

A search on an organization that is not indexed as a preferred name or as a name variant returns all records that contain the organization name that you entered as a search query.

index

Organization-Enhanced Example

A search on a preferred organization name returns all records that contain the preferred name and all records that contain its name variants. For example, a search on Cornell Univ returns all records that contain the preferred name (Cornell Univ) and all records that contain the variants, such as:

  • Cornell Clin Trials Unit
  • Cornell Coll Human Ecol
  • Cornell Coll Med
  • Cornell Coll Univ
  • Cornell Coll Vet Med
  • Weill Cornell Med Coll
  • And other name variants of Cornell Univ

A search on a name variant returns all records that contain only the variant. For example, if you enter Cornell Law Sch as the name variant, the product returns all records that contain Cornell Law Sch.

index

PS=Province / State

Searches for provinces and states in the Addresses field within a record.

Note: In Current Contents Connect, the product searches the Reprint Address field within a record.

PY=Year Published

Searches the Source Published field within a record. You must combine this field tag with another field tag using the AND or NOT Boolean operator.

Example: TS=cell growth AND PY=2007

When entering a range of years, restrict your search to five years or less; otherwise, processing slows down and the product returns too many unproductive results.

Example: TS=cell growth AND PY=(2008-2010)
