Searching the Address Field
The Russian Citation Index provides partial addresses of authors. Generally, the name of the institution and department name are given, but the country name or full mailing address is not provided.
A superscript next to an author name indicates the corresponding address in the Addresses field.
If the name of an author in Cyrillic script has been transliterated into Latin script, then an address for that author is usually supplied in both Cyrillic and English.
Омский государственный университет finds records in which Омский государственный университет appears in the Addresses field.
Омский finds records in which Омский appears in the Addresses field. This search retrieves all of the records found by the search Омский государственный университет. In addition, it retrieves records that contain Омский anywhere in an address:
Omsk State University finds records in which Omsk State University appears in the Addresses field.
Omsk find records in which Omsk appears in the Addresses field. This search retrieves all records found by the search Omsk State University. In addition, it retrieves records in which Omsk appears anywhere in the Addresses field.
Use the SAME operator because it specifies that terms joined by the operator be in the same address. Using the SAME operator restricts your search.
For example, the search query IBM SAME NY retrieves records that contain these two terms in the Addresses field of a Full Record. For instance:
See also SAME
Use the AND operator to broaden your search across all addresses within a record.
The search IBM AND NY retrieves all of the records that IBM SAME NY retrieves. In addition, it will retrieve records in which IBM and NY are in the Address field but they are in different addresses.
For example, IBM AND NY retrieves a record that contains these two addresses.
1. Cornell Univ, Dept Mat Sci & Engn, Ithaca, NY 14853
As you can see, the product returned a record in which NY appears in one address and IBM appears in a different address.
Address Synonyms and Abbreviations
Common address terms and many institution names are abbreviated in the product database.
Terms such Univ, Med, and Phys must be entered as part of an address phrase. For example, Penn State Univ is acceptable, but Univ alone is not.
About Search Operators
To search on an address that contains a search operator (AND, OR, NOT, NEAR, SAME), enclose the name in quotation marks. Example: Portland "OR"
Also, try spelling out the full address. Example: Oregon OR "OR" AND Portland
