How to search

To get the best results, please read through the list of hints before you start your search.


if you know the name of the author, the easiest way to search for his papers is to use the author index.


By default, substrings are matched, so that e.g. searching for "hhorn" will yield records with Eichhorn as well as Buchhorn in them. Thus, there usually is no need for wildcards. If you enable "match whole words only", please note that an author's surname and his/her initials are one word; thus, to find an author with "match whole words only", you have to give the initials.
