SeekOut Expert is a unique capability of some SeekOut subscriptions which give you access to nearly 100 million engineering, computer science, and life sciences experts. This people-centric search engine allows you to find candidates based on their research papers, conference presentations, and patents.

The UI of SeekOut Expert allows you to find candidates in a number of ways, including searching by Topic, Conference, Affiliation, and more. Sometimes, however, you may want to use Boolean to construct a very specific query. When you do, you can use the field-based search strings below to narrow your search.

You use the field-based syntax with keywords, quoted phrases, or Boolean strings. Here are some examples:

cur_company:google

conferences:(NIPS OR SIGCHI)

cur_title:(data OR (scientist OR engineer))

Here's the list of supported field-based search terms:
