fin add Sand Hill fin add Japan fin add Chicago
This is the best way to find institutions if you don't know what name we use.. Any and all words in the address for the institution are searched.
You can use States and provinces here too:
fin add California fin add Sakyo-ku fin add Illinois
You can also use names:
fin add SLAC fin add Kyoto University fin add Enrico Fermi Institute
fin inst SLAC fin aff Kyoto U. fin icn Chicago
This must be name that we have given to the institution, or a part of that name.
Catch Phrase
fin icncp SLAC fin icncp Kyoto U. fin icncp Chicago U., EFI
This is the full exact name that we give to the institution, this is the best way to find the one and only one institution you want, if you know our name for it.
fin city Menlo Park fin city Kyoto fin city Chicago
Searches the city part of the address only. You could use address for this as well, but city can give you better results if you know you want that city only.
fin director Dorfan
Our latest information about the Director of the institute or lab. This may be out of date, and you can let us know at inst@inspirehep.net.
fin url string slac
"String" searching is really useful here, since you are unlikely to know exactly what URL we have for the institution. If you search for "url str" then you can enter any piece of the URL. (Hint: "fin url str edu" is not likely to be helpful.)

Notes about Names

We usually assign the general name "Faber U." to a university's physics dept., because this is likely to be where most SPIRES papers are coming from. Occasionally, if there are many papers coming from a different department we will add an entry for that department such as "Faber U., Agriculture Dept." In addition if there are other campuses, or possible redundancies, we will note "Faber U., Springfield"

There are a few exceptions (Stanford U., Phys. Dept.) that arose for historical reasons, but the above is a good general guideline. If you think a name we have is unduly confusing or incorrect, let us know at inst@inspirehep.net, however, we may not be able to change it because these names are used in HEP as well, and some popular institutions have large number of papers that would have to be changed.

SPIRES HEP was a joint project of SLAC, DESY & FNAL as well as the worldwide HEP community.
It was superseeded by INSPIRE
