Viewing Results

  1. By default, results will be sorted by publication Date, from newest to oldest. You may find it more useful to sort instead by Relevance, which is closer to how many databases and search engines (like Google) work. You might also want to try sorting by Times Cited, which refers to how many times a given article was cited by other papers in the database. A high Times Cited count may indicate that an article was influential, though it does not guarantee that.
  2. Each result lists the title of the article, authors, journal title, and publication date.
  3. You can view Abstracts without leaving the search results page.
