Basic Keyword Searching

When you first log into SciFinder-n the References search option is selected by default. [1]

Enter keywords in the search box.

  • As you type a keyword, SciFinder-n brings up a list of suggested terms from which you can select. [2]
  • The second search box allows you to select a particular index for your search terms. [3]
  • To add additional terms to your search, click on "Add Advanced Search Field."  [4] If you change the drop-down list to "Concept" you can take advantage of SciFinder-n's search term vocabulary, which allows you to do more precise searching.
