Searching CiteSeerx Effectively
- The Documents tab is selected by default. To search for a specific author, select the Author tab.
- type the topic or name you are searching for into the textbox
- check the "Include Citations" box (optional)
- and select the "Search" button or hit the "enter" key.
CiteSeerx supports complex queries based on the following fields:
By default (if no fields are specified) CiteSeerx will search the title, author, abstract, and text fields in parallel.
CiteSeerx supports Proximity and Boolean queries. Please note that adjacent words will default to one word proximity.
Unlike the old CiteSeer system, citations and full documents are included within the same index in CiteSeerx. By default, citations for which we have no accompanying document file will not show up in search results. If it is desirable to include these records in search results, simply check the Include Citations checkbox on the search form.
CiteSeerx offers three Search plugins for browsers which supports the Open Search 1.1 specification. To add a plugin just click over it.
Capitalization Does Not Matter
CiteSeerx is NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for "bollacker", "Bollacker", and "bOlLaCkEr" will all return the same results.
