Tips and Tricks

Using Operators

You can create even more sophisticated searches using operators, which are special words used in the search/keyword field such as "AND" to ensure the search works in a specific way.

OR 

This operator allows a search to return results that contain any of the search terms you provide. However it is the default and therefore you  do not need  to provide it. 

Example:  A search for  foundation OR stage  is the same as  foundation stage  since the search defaults to the OR operator

AND 

This operator ensures that all words can be found in each of the search results 

Example:  You wish to search for articles that contain the words foundation and stage - but not necessarily in that order or next to each - just somewhere in the article. 
Solution:  Enter this into the keywords field:  foundation AND stage

The "+ " operator ensures the term after the "+" symbol exists somewhere in each search result. 

Example:  You wish to search for articles that contain the words speech but may or may not contain the word language. 
Solution:  Enter this into the keywords field:  +speech language

The "-" operator ensures the term after the "-" symbol DOES NOT exists somewhere in each search result. 

Example:  You wish to search for articles that contain the words branding but must not contain advice. 
Solution:  Enter this into the keywords field:  branding -advice

NOT 

The "NOT" operator excludes words that you do NOT want to be found anywhere in the search results. 

Example:  You wish to search for articles that contain the words marketing but DO NOT contain research. 
Solution:  Enter this into the keywords field:  marketing NOT research

Phrases 

If you wish to search against multiple words as an  exact  phrase, you can do this using double quote marks "..." 

Example:  You wish to search for articles that contain the exact phrase "social media"
Solution:  Enter this into the keywords field:  "social media"

Combining operators - Advanced Searches

  You can combine the operators above to create complex, grouped searches using parentheses.


Example:
 You wish to search for articles that contain the phrase social media and MUST mention facebook
Solution:
 Enter this into the keywords field:  "social media" AND facebook

Example:
 You wish to search for articles that contain the phrase social media AND either facebook or twitter
Solution:
 Enter this into the keywords field:  "social media" AND (facebook OR twitter)
