ARF PowerSearch provides members with the ability to look into the results and assess, early on, if they’re of interest. This is big, and another way we make search more efficient and productive.
By self-describing results, we mean:
The same information available for the entire set of results that come back for your search plus terms related to your search that help broaden your thinking and lead to discovery of new or adjacent ideas.
If there’s an organization, name, source ore related term that interests you, you can restrict the results to only those with those selected terms. Clicking on a highlighted word applies a filter that can be used alone or in combination.
