The Basic view will display the title, author, publication date, and description in a list format. The Detailed view will display fields of your choosing in a more compact, tabular format.

If you have created a SciTech Account, then your results display will default to the selected view in your account settings. You can change your default view by logging in to your account and selecting the basic or detailed view.
