Frequently Asked Questions

How does the search work?

Each term is searched in the title of all publications by all researchers. If the filter "publications per year" is activated, the search is restricted to the period that comprises the start and end years indicated therein. The results are presented in descending order of frequency, followed by the total number of publications and, finally, in the alphabetical order of the researchers' names.
