RefDB query results

Fig. 2: The results of your queries are displayed in lists. Buttons and checkboxes allow to edit and delete the references, or to display them in a different format. Author names, keywords, and periodical names are displayed as "tag clouds", i.e. the font size indicates the frequency of the particular item in the database. Each of the items in blue (authors, periodicals, keywords) is a live link that runs another query when clicked, requesting references containing that particular item
