Results Page

The results page contains a list of all of the scholars who match your search query. The search terms will all be highlighted to easily find where the terms were found within the content. To see the full entry for any of the scholars listed on your results page, simply click on that scholar's name.

Sorting

You can sort the information on the results page in two ways: by relevance (the default sort) or alphabetically.

    Sorting by Relevance puts the entries with the most field matches closer to the top, and the entries with the fewest matches at the bottom. For instance, if you searched for "Harvard" within the Education and Professional Experience fields, the entries that had Harvard in both Education and Professional Experience would be up top, while the entries that had Harvard in only one of the fields would be at the bottom.
    Sorting Alphabetically simply lists all the results alphabetically by the scholar's name as it is entered into the database.
