Select the References search type, and then click Advanced Search.

On the Advanced Reference Search page, enter the author’s name in the Author Name field. As you enter text, you may also select one of the suggestions that appear.


Click the search button button.


On the References results page, click View All under the Author filter.

In the Author window, click the Search tab. You may also use the Alphanumeric tab (shown here). 

Enter the author’s name and click the Search button.

We are now seeing all reference results by Jochen K. Schubert. To further focus your results, try applying the Publication Year, Document Type, and Organization filters (found in the left-hand navigation bar).
