IVR Cheat Sheet(tm) by Paul English Oxford Open | Oxford Open OUP Supports Open Access Oxford University Press (OUP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission. A Proven Track Record of Success OUP has been publishing OA content since 2004. We have also successfully launched or taken over high-quality OA titles, including: Genome Biology and Evolution, Journal of Legal Analysis, Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and Database. OUP facilitates green OA either by allowing authors to deposit versions of their manuscripts in institutional or subject repositories after a specified time period, or depositing the version of record on their behalf.

Alles über Suchmaschinen auf Suchfibel.de Skills for Online Searching - ipl2 A+ Research & Writing Learn how search syntax works Search syntax is a set of rules describing how users can query the database being searched. Sophisticated syntax makes for a better search, one where the items retrieved are mostly relevant to the searcher's need and important items are not missed. It allows a user to look for combinations of terms, exclude other terms, look for various forms of a word, include synonyms, search for phrases rather than single words. The main tools of search syntax are these: Boolean logic Boolean logic allows the use of AND, OR and NOT to search for items containing both terms, either term, or a term only if not accompanied by another term. Wildcards and truncation This involves substituting symbols for certain letters of a word so that the search engine will retrieve items with any letter in that spot in the word. Phrase searching Many concepts are represented by a phrase rather than a single word. Proximity Capitalization Field searching Representation or summary of a document
