To Build a Search

Select a field from the drop-down menu (see Figure 2).

You can continue to build your search using Boolean operators - AND, OR, NOT - and add terms or phrases from additional fields. If you need to add more lines to your search, click on the plus sign and another line will be added. You can continue to build your search in the Search Limits section of the Advanced Search page. The results page provides additional refinement options on the left side of the screen.

HSRProj continues to provide easy searching of Year Ranges, Country or U.S. State of the research, Project Status (Ongoing, Completed or Archived), or search only within the latest update. You may set further Search Limits on the bottom of the Advanced Search page, or run the search first using only the top of the page options. The results page will offer these further Search Limits on the left-hand side of the screen, tailored to the results set.
