Tips for building search statements

Use the following techniques to improve your search statements and results (e.g. to find more of the results with a variation of the word form, more focused results with the exact phrase included, a larger set of results with all the possible words in the results, or more accurate combination of the possible search terms).

Truncation (* $)

searches for variant endings

E.g. leader* = leader, leaders, leadership

Quotation marks (" ")

searches for an exact phrase

E.g. "educational theory"

OR operator

expands your search to find similar words or synonyms

E.g. (assessment OR measurement)


to create correct processing order in searches

E.g. ("primary school" OR "elementary school") AND assessment
