How to search
Searching is case independent. The terms that your
reference(s) are retrieved on are highlighted in
The database has three independently searchable fields,
they are: author(s), title & abstract of paper,
and year of publication range.
- Authors -- please enter surnames only. Composite surnames
like O'Brien or Llewelleyn-Jones should be searched
with apostrophes and hyphens in place.
Authors sharing common surnames may be searched in the form Smith,
I. (i.e. surname/comma/space/first initial).
In cases where surname and initials are insufficient to differentiate
multiple authors, the full given name is used (e.g. Schmidt, Michael
and Schmidt, Martina.)
- Keyword in title/abstract -- this includes words from
the title of the paper and the abstract, etc., if one is available.
You may need to try synonyms, e.g.CO2, carbon dioxide;
truncation, e.g. use climat in preference to climate
or climatic; and alternative spellings, e.g.modeling,
Boolean type searching within this field isn't available; the
search looks for the exact character string that you type
- Start Year -- this is entered in 4 digit form. Please
enter the earliest year (1938 onwards) that interests you. We
have preset a suggested earliest date of 2005.
- End year - also entered in 4 digit form. Please enter
the latest year that interests you.
- Maximum Hits - Please enter a number (1 or more) that
you are prepared to view. We have preset this at 100.
- Hypertext links are automatically created for publications
that are available, in whole or part, electronically. You may
restrict your search to records containing URL links by use of
the "Only display online publications" radio button.
- Some full-text links are only available to CSIRO/CMAR staff
(or at a specific site) as a result of licencing or copyright
restrictions. There is an access note at the bottom of the associated
"Detail" to indicate what limitations, if any, exist
for that particular electronic publication. Talk to your local
Librarian about full availability.
- Abstracts (and availability notes) may be displayed where available.
