ty stands for the word TYPE. The modifiers below allow very specific variations on certain searches.
ty:brv (type: book review.): To find reviews that mention the book Don Quixote anywhere in the text of the review, type: ty:brv "don quixote"
ty:fla To search for only full-length articles and NOT reviews: ty:fla (type: full-length article). So, to find only full-length articles that mention Don Quixote and no reviews, type: ty:fla "Don Quixote"
ty:rt To search for the title of a work being reviewed: rt: (stands for reviewed title). So, to find reviews of any work called Don Quixote, type: rt: "Don Quixote"
Many reviews of works don't have a unique title. These items will have "Review: [untitled]" as their citation title. Searching for untitled won't work. Use ty:brv instead.
ti: To search for a term in the title of either a review or full-length article: ti:(stands for title). So, to search for the term Don Quixote in the title of a review, an article, or a work being reviewed, type: ti: "don quixote". However, ti:flower pot will get flower in the title but pot anywhere in the text. Ti: (flower pot) will get both words in the title, not necessarily in order.
ta: To search for only titles of full-length articles and not reviews: ta: (stands for title of article). So, to find Don Quixote in the title of articles that are not reviews, type: ta: "don quixote"
aa: To search by author of a review or full-length article (but not the author of the work being reviewed): aa: (stands for article author). To find reviews or articles by Smith, type: aa:smith
To search by author of a work being reviewed: ra: (reviewed author). To find reviews of original works by Smith, type: ra:smith
You may use more than one of these field tags in a search:
What if I wanted to find a review of Cervantes's book Don Quixote (but not anyone else's book called Don Quixote? Type in rt:"don quixote" AND ra:Cervantes
