PsychSpider enables you to limit your search to certain attributes of a document. While indexing the crawled documents PsychSpider extracts zones and fields in documents so that they can be searched. Mime-Type, language, title, keywords, author or URL are such attributes which are kept in zones or fields, so that they become searchable.
To search these fields you can use the Parametric Index or use special search syntax. There is a major difference in the search syntax if the attribute is stored in a zone or in a field. Zones can be searched using the zone name and the relational operator colon (:). Be sure to enclose your search with double quotation marks if it contains spaces, otherwise the part after the space would not be treated as part of your zone search.
To focus on documents by a specific author use the zone 'author'.
Tip of the week: Search Engines like PsychSpider follow links within documents to gather more documents. A document can only be found by the search engine, if a hyperlink exists or the search engine knows the exact URL. If you can't find a specific document (i.e. "Psychoanalyse im Wandel der Zeit"), but you know who has published it (i.e. Universität Trier), PsychSpider might help you to get a contact address, so you will be able to request the document via telephone, letter or E-Mail.
