Affiliation Search: From the Search page click on the "Affiliation Search" tab. Enter the institution of interest in the search box and click search.

Results for each institution provide the percentage of publications in each of the covered subject areas, the total number of documents published by the institution, the total number of authors affiliated with the institution, journals and other sources of the documents, major collaborating affiliations of the institution, etc. You may further sort the documents, authors, web results, patent results, sources and affiliated institutions retrieved by clicking on the appropriate link.
For any given search, once you have retrieved a list of documents, you can click the Analyze Results button in the top left corner of the results box. A window will open with several tabs. Each tab in the Analyze Results windown contains a set of graphical displays and charts that can be manipulated. Search metrics are organized by Year, Source Title, Author name, Affiliation, Name Country, Document type and Subject area. The graphics also offer contextual boxes that give insight on specific points along the curve.
