Keywords


Listed on this page are recommended keywords used to tag materials placed on this site. Keywords are used in certain automated features e.g. aggregation and linking of materials pertaining to a particular topic, so their consistent use is enouraged. The keywords are case-sensitive.

The same set of keywords is used for materials uploaded to the Zenodo system under the umbrella of the PHENIX Community on Zenodo. The list is compiled to provide better consistency of the subsequent queries. Zenodo is using a complex query mechanism which includes but is not limited to “elastic search” on the submission text (where applicable) so the effect of capitalization on queries is not always straighforward. In the following we adopt lowercase convention for all keywords. Note that a keyword on Zenodo can actually be a combination of words and white space (i.e. phrases). Multiple such combinations are allowed in a single query.

In the tables below, the keywords are grouped in categories. Each entry in the left column acts as a query link to Zenodo, for that specific keyword. Pages containing results of queries will open in a new tab/window.
