Search for should be used for searching for words in the article title, article abstract and article keywords. To search within article title only the radio button in article title should be selected. Search for supports the Boolean operators AND, OR, NOT, with AND being the implied action if no operators are used.
Author should be used to find an article written by a specific author. Author names should be entered surname, initials or surname, firstname. When dealing with common names it is advisable to combine this search with another term, such as a word from the article title or publication name.

If you are looking for a book or wish to browse the contents of a journal you should use the Browse Publications link in the top menu bar.
