|Publications of the Faculty|
The page "Publications of the Faculty" provides a simple interface that allows in a concise mode a search of the data in the database for everybody without the need of a login into the database. Depending on the location from and the conditions under which the page "Publications of the Faculty" has been invoked, some fields may be preset. For the benefit of the international community, the page "Publications of the Faculty" is completely bi-lingual (English and German); the user may switch at any time between the two language versions.
The page "Publications of the Faculty" consists of several zones which are dedicated to different functions:
The search can be limited according to one of four criteria:
The next two zones constitute a functional unit. They permit a full-text search of the records that meet the above criteria. Either the entire record or only certain parts of it may be searched. No search takes place if the field "Search for" is empty; all records which meet the above criteria are listed in this case. You can find comprehensive information on the full-text search in a separate help file.
The last two zones but one pertain to the rendering of the publication lists: They allow to activate the display of additional information on the persons involved in the publication entries, and determine the sorting order of the extended publication list to be created. The criterion "age" pertains to the time when a publication has been entered into the database (the publications entered last appear first in the output list); it has been provided for database administration purposes. A checkbox permits to invert the (primary) sort order.
The last zone holds only the button "Search for records in the Publication Database". On clicking on this button an extended publication list is created, which contains all records that meet all the selection criteria. The title of a publication is displayed as a link to an electronic version of this publication if applicable; a link "More information" is displayed immediately after all records that hold information beyond the standard bibliographical data, e.g., abstracts. The link "More information" invokes a page which holds this additional information.
