Meta Help Center

There are two ways to search for papers: By Text Match or by searching for a term from our knowledge graph.

For example, you can do a Text Match search for “BRCA1,” or search for a term from our knowledge graph, such as “BRCA1 gene”  image.pngor “BRCA1 protein” or “BRCA1 wt allele.”

When you perform a Text Match search Search.png, Meta retrieves papers that contain the specified search term in its title or abstract, similar to the way PubMed or Google Scholar work. A Text Match search is useful for scientific terms that have not yet been incorporated into Meta’s knowledge graph. When you search for a term, Meta will retrieve papers containing the specified term but also terms that have similar meanings or are related to the term.

Multiple search terms

You can search for more than one term.  You can type a second term into the search bar, and the resulting papers will contain both terms as if an AND operator was used. You can also select terms suggested by Meta on the same screen.
