The full list of results is also available for inspection or modifications and can be exported in a variety of formats.
Affiliation search syntax across databases
Every data source has its own unique syntax that – oftentimes – is not fully documented. Below you will find the most important tips and problems, but to get the best out of the different data sources you need to be prepared to experiment with different search strategies. If you find that some things are not working as you expect, please share your findings by sending me an email, so that, collectively, we can improve these instructions.
Please note: The search syntax below refers to what works best when you search the data source through Publish or Perish. This is not always identical to the most effective search syntax in the web interfaces of the respective databases as these might be structured differently.
At present we can not recommend using this search field.
Seems to have affiliation information for only a (small) subset of publishers. Springer, Elsevier and Emerald appear to be among the publishers not covered.
As the affiliation is linked to papers, not individuals, a combined author / affiliation search will report results even if it is one of the author’s co-authors that has the requested affiliation.
Implements OR searches only. Hence Middlesex University will also match any other university with University in its name. We recommend that you search for the most unique part of the university's name only.
Can include affiliation in the keyword field using quotes e.g. "Middlesex University", but (like any GS search) this will be matched anywhere in the document, not just as affiliation of an author. Hence there is no one-to-one link between author and affiliation.
Does not support regular affiliation searches by name, but can search by using Affiliation ID, which can be found on the OpenAlex website.
Provides reasonably good results, but some publications have missing affiliations, and some have the wrong affiliation. As their data base is under active development this may well be resolved in the near future.
