  • 2Search Boxes
    • Simple Search
      • All of these words
        Returns results containing all the words entered, in any order, separated by any number of other words. This is the equivalent of a Boolean AND search.
      Example: Entering advanced multiple myeloma will return results such as multiple cancers, advanced asset and multiple myeloma, as well as advanced multiple myeloma.
    • Advanced Search: additional search boxes
      • At least one of these words
        Returns results containing any of the words entered, in any order, separated by any number of words. This is the equivalent of a Boolean OR search.
      Example: Entering advanced multiple myeloma will return results such as Advanced Magnetics, 8X multiple, advanced ovarian cancer, in addition to advanced multiple myeloma.
      • None of these words
        Words appearing in this text box will be excluded from the search. Use this box to limit the results from the All and At least one searches. This is the equivalent of a Boolean NOT search.
      Example: Entering Pfizer in this box will exclude any article containing the word Pfizer.
      • The exact phrase
        Enter a single phrase exactly as you want it to appear in your search results. Do not enter more than one phrase, and do not use quotes.
      Example: Entering multiple myeloma in this box will return articles that contain multiple myeloma, but not multiple trials in myeloma, multiple sclerosis, advanced myeloma or any other combination of words that include multiple or myeloma. The exact phrase search is case-sensitive, which means that the search for multiple myeloma will not return Multiple myeloma or Multiple Myeloma.
  • 3Search Tools
    These tools were built to help you improve your search results by helping you use the same terms BioCentury editors use for things like diseases and targets, many of which have alternative names or spellings. Now you can search or browse through and select our BioCentury Disease Categories, Products and Molecular Targets and easily add them to your archives search.
    • Disease Category
      Click Disease Category to see a pop-up box that displays all of the BioCentury Disease Categories and Indications. You can browse or search the list to select disease categories and indications, and have them automatically added to the At least one of these words search box.
      Tip: This is most useful for diseases and indications that have more than one commonly used spelling, such as chronic lymphocytic/lymphoid leukemia/leukaemia, or CLL.
    Example: To ensure you find all articles that mention the indication AML (which is commonly spelled acute myeloid leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, and acute myeloid leukaemia), browse indications under Cancer, or enter AML in the Search Disease Categories/Indications box and click Search. Click to place a check mark next to Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and click the Add To Search Terms button. The search term "Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)" will appear in the At least one of these words search box.
    • Product Name
      Click Product Name to see a pop-up window in which you can search for a specific product name, then have that name and any other names associated with the same product automatically entered into the At least one of these words search box.
      Tip: This is most useful for products that have been known by a compound number, a generic INN and/or a brand name; products whose name has been changed; and products that have different brand names for different territories or indications.
    Example: To find all articles that refer to the branded product Arzerra, including articles published before the product's brand name was established, enter Arzerra into the Specify Product Name field and click Search. Click to place a check mark next to Arzerra (Brand), ofatumumab (Generic), HuMax-CD20 (Informal), 2F2 (Other). Click Add To Search Terms. The search terms "2F2" "Arzerra" "HuMax-CD20" and "ofatumumab" will appear in the At least one of these words search box.
    • Molecular Target
      Click Molecular Target to see a pop-up window in which you can search for a specific product name, then have that name and any other names associated with the same product automatically entered into the At least one of these words search box.
      Tip: This is most useful for targets that are known by more than one name or abbreviation.
    Example:: To find all articles that refer to the target Acetyl-Coenzyme A carboxylase alpha, select the target from the alphabetical list, or enter the target name into the search box and click Search. Click to place a check mark next to Acetyl-Coenzyme A carboxylase alpha (ACACA) (ACC1).
