Search Rules

  • Words that you enter into the search box are searched as separate terms joined by the logical AND. All words must appear in the method, but not necessarily in close proximity or in the same order.
  • To search for a specific phrase, enclose the words in double quotes. The exact words, in order, will be searched as a single term. In the case of fields with controlled vocabulary (such as Analyte, Matrix, and Technique), synonyms for the term will also be retrieved.
  • Words or phrases that you select from the list of autosuggestions are automatically placed in double quotes and searched as a single term.
  • Multiple words entered into an Advanced Search field are automatically searched as a single term.
