Specify the date range and search fields (such as Document Title, Authors, Publication Title, Abstract, Author ORCID). Default is search metadata only (excluding full text)
- Author ORCID
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a persistent, unique digital identifier that distinguishes one author from all other researchers.
You can create an ORCID iD via the HKUST System. Some publishers require authors to include their ORCID identifiers when submitting papers.
- Word Variations
The system will search for plural and suffixed forms of any keywords, and find both British and American spelling variants. Hence, cable will find cable, cables, cabled and cabling; and color will also find colour.
- Phrase Search
Use " " to enclose a phrase: "big data".
Use * to find variant endings of the same root: volt* to find volt, voltage, voltmeter, etc.
- Search Operators
AND - narrow a search by combining concepts, e.g., "big data" and mining
OR - broaden a search by including synonyms or alternative terms, e.g., encryption or cryptography
NOT - exclude a word from your search, e.g., sensors not actuators
Use parentheses to set priority; terms inside the brackets will be searched first.
e.g., bandwidth and (wireless or mobile)
