SAO/NASA ADS Legacy Fulltext Search

Please note that this is a legacy search form and its use has been deprecated in favor of the new ADS, which covers both the current and historical literature.

This form allows the searching of the full text of all scanned articles in the ADS. Please note that this consists of astronomy papers published through the late 1990s, and does not include the current literature. For a complete listing of what publications are currently included, please see the list of journals and dates given under the ADS article service page: if you are interested in searching the fulltext of the current literature we suggest using the the new ADS interface This application will return documents containing all the words specified in the search box. By default Synonym Replacement is enabled. This means that the system searches for the specified words as well as all their synonyms. This can be disabled for individual words by prefixing these words with '='. Phrase searching can be done by enclosing a sequence of words in double quotes. Within phrases, synonym replacement is always on, it cannot be disabled.
