    Search Tips
    Adjacency Multiple words are searched together as one phrase.
    Example : world health organization
    Wildcards Words may be right-hand truncated using an asterisk ('*') in place of other characters. The '*' wildcard may also be embedded in a search string. Use '**' for open-ended truncation of over five characters. You may use '?' to replace a single character anywhere within a word.
    Examples : environment* polic*, p*ediatric, cardi**, wom?n
    Boolean Operators Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use "and not" to exclude words.
    Example : heart and lungs
    Example : (heart or cardiology) and (failure and not attack)
    Field limits A field limit causes the system to search only the specified field for the specified word(s).
    Grouping Keyword search results are usually grouped by relevance to bring the most likely titles to the top of the list. Each group represents a similar level of relevance and results are sorted within the group by date or title. To get an ungrouped result set, use boolean operators to form a complex query.
