Abstract
The search for anisotropies in cosmic ray arrival directions with space experiments like the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) on the International Space Station is subject to a number of time and energy dependent effects originating from the detector, its environment and the data selection that need to be corrected for. Different approaches to accommodate for these effects are motivated and presented. The impact of these effects on the interpretation of anisotropy is discussed.
