How are the categories in the "Refine Results" area of the Result List generated?

Facets organize search results into groups based on categories such as subject headings, authors, journals, companies, geography, and NAICS/Industry codes.

  • Facets are grouped by Subject, Journal or Author (as set in EBSCOadmin).

  • The list is comprised of the top ten most frequent subjects, journals, authors, etc. among the first 125 results, using the default sort.

  • The maximum number of facets is 10.
