How To Search Publications and Projects

Search Publications and Project to explore how specimens are used, how projects support other projects, how Publications are produced, and much more.


Remarks is a combined search which matches either project or publication remarks.

Minimum Description Length

Projects with very short descriptions are often low-quality and are by default excluded from search. The length requirements may be changed on the search form.


Matches any agent who has a role in a project or publication. Note that not all publication authors are necessarily entered as Agents, in which case searching by Agent will not find the publication.


Project title or publication title/citation.


4-digit year in which a publication was published, or any year in which a project was active.

Project Type

Project Type allows filtering projects by their activity.


Filter for publications which contain direct citations to specimens or those which do not contain citations and are linked to specimens only through Projects.
