Using Advanced Search

A "Power Search" will try to find your text in ANY or ALL of these fields:
➔ paper title,
➔ abstract,
➔ document text,
➔ author name,
➔ author affiliation.

Any other options chosen below will act as an AND search and further limit your results.

The AES search engine allows advanced searches by surrounding multiple words in quotes, using boolean operators (AND OR), or using wildcard symbols: * = match one or more characters, ? = match a single character, ~ = fuzzy search.

For example, to search for papers that contain both the word "sound" and the word "quality", but not necessarily together, type sound AND quality in the search box. To search for the phrase "sound quality" type "sound quality" in double quotes in the search box.
