Search Tips

  • SciFinder automatically looks for synonyms, other word forms (typing freeze would result in freeze, frozen, freezing, froze etc.), abbreviations (typing chem. results in chemistry, chemical etc.) and includes British and American spellings (color would include color and colour)
  • Words may also be automatically truncated—adjustment may result in Sci Finder looking for adjust, adjusting etc.
  • Must enter a last name for an author search. Sci Finder defaults to "Look for alternative spellings of the last name". For example, type jone and notice the variations that are retrieved.
