Instructions for Citing Abstracts

To browse, simply select a meeting and click the browse button. To search for criteria, you must type the word(s) in question into the search field above, and click the search button. For both search/browse, you have the ability to restrict the scope as you choose. The 2001 abstracts are searchable by title or author. The search engine has indexed the complete text of all later abstracts, as well as the titles and authors.

You may broaden or refine a search by specifying the type of search you wish to conduct

  • match all words in the search box
  • match any words
  • execute a Boolean search expression (Use the words AND, OR, and NOT as well as parentheses to define that expression. E.g. "caries AND (fluoride or fluorosis)")

The search is not case sensitive. For simplicity the search engine uses a simple ASCII match on author's names, so please use simple letters (a, e, i, o, u, c) instead of , , , , etc.
