Searchable Data Fields

The available searchable data fields in STN are dependent upon which database is being searched. STN provides a Database Summary Sheet for every database and makes these summary sheets available in bookmarked PDF format on the CAS website. These summary sheets are available for anyone to download and view, and include the searchable data fields available in the database as well as other pertinent information such as:

  • Subject Coverage
  • File Type
  • Features
  • Record Content
  • File Size
  • Coverage
  • Updates
  • Language
  • Database Producer
  • Database Supplier
  • Sources
  • User Aids
  • Clusters
  • Related Databases
  • Pricing
  • Search and Display Field Codes
  • DISPLAY and PRINT Formats
  • Thesaurus Fields
  • SELECT, ANALYZE, and SORT Fields
  • Sample Records


Most databases feature a relatively large amount of searchable data fields, including value-added fields for databases such as those produced by Derwent.
