Basic Search

Searching for the title of a journal, the abbreviation of a journal, the name of an author, and the abbreviated name of an author is possible without using “Search Fields”.
(e.g., bronchodilators, asthma children or Kim DS or J Korean Med Sci)

To search for specific phrases, put the search phrase in double quotation marks.
(e.g., "asthma children")

If no “Search Fields” are set, “Search Fields” is automatically set to [ALL].
(e.g., "asthma children" is translated as "asthma children"[ALL])

If no other logical operator is specified, the basic logical operation is “AND” between words.
(e.g., asthma children is translated as asthma AND children)

The “Search Fields” function operates on the level of individual words.
(e.g., asthma children is translated as asthma[ALL] AND children[ALL])
