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
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.
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This may be out of date, and you can let us know at
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
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.
