Search techniques

These search techniques can be used in Summon, and databases such as Web of Science Core Collection and CAB Direct.

  • Search for a phrase using quotation marks, e.g. "indigenous forestry"
  • Combine search terms with AND to narrow a search, e.g. "indigenous forestry" AND governance
  • Combine search terms with OR to expand a search, e.g. governance OR management OR leadership
  • Search variations of a word using truncation, e.g. forest* to search forest, forests, forestry
  • Put it altogether using search boxes or parentheses, e.g. "indigenous forest*" AND (governance OR management OR leadership)

These search techniques can be used in Google and Google Scholar.

  • Search for a phrase using quotation marks, e.g. "indigenous forestry"
  • Combine search terms automatically (default "and" between words) to narrow a search, e.g. "indigenous forestry" governance
  • Combine search terms carefully with OR to expand a search, e.g. governance OR management OR leadership
  • Keep your searches simple. The asterisk does not work as a truncation symbol, and you cannot use parentheses.
