|"Contains abstracts of articles published in the primary professional literature of the communication(s) field. The full text of the ComAbstracts database can be searched; that is, abstracts may be searched by word, phrase, or author. The search system supports full Boolean search logic (AND, OR, NOT, XOR), proximity searching, wildcard searching, and word conflation (which finds alternative forms of words based on common linguistic roots). Synonyms are available for many clusters of terms and are included automatically in searches unless they are explicitly overriden in the search specification (for example, a search for 'YOUTH' will also match 'TEEN' and 'ADOLESCENT'). The database may also be searched using a keyword system consisting of menus of prepared terms and search specifications." Coverage depends on the journal, but most span the late 1980's and 1990's; some start earlier, including one beginning in 1966. Updates are continuous.|
