Using a combination of the Author and Abstract/Keywords Advanced Search fields, you may find references by a particular author and keyword. In the following example, we want to find any references by Jochen K. Schubert with the keywords "VOC" and "pulmonary" in the abstract.

  1. Select the References search type.


  2. Enter the name in last name, first name middle name format. field. As you enter text, you can also select one of the suggestions that appear.


      • If you search a last, first/middle name, matching results will have the first/middle name or initial letters of the first/middle name.
        Example: Smith, Peter will return results from Smith, Peter and Smith, P. L.
      • If you search a last name with a first/middle name that is an initial, matching results will have the first/middle initial and any first/middle name starting with the initial.
        Example: Smith, P will return Smith, P.; Smith, Peter; Smith, Patrick J.; and Smith, Pamela A.
  3. Next, we'll Add another Advanced Search Field, select Abstract/Keywords, and then enter the first keyword (in our example, VOC).




  4. Repeat step 3 to add another keyword (in our example, pulmonary).


  5. Click the SF-MagnifyingGlassIcon.png icon.

In our example, there are 5 references by Jochen K. Schubert with "VOC" or "pulmonary" in the abstract. Note that "lung" is highlighted as a synonym for "pulmonary."
