With Find In Context, the options to construct logical relationships among search terms extend far beyond the traditional practice of Boolean searching (although you can still use the standard boolean operators if you like).
Boolean logic consists of three logical operators: OR, AND, NOT. Find In Context's native search mode is NEAR, which is an extension of these and which provides higher flexibility and much more relevant results than the standard operators. The details are given below.
On this page (also see other pages):
Boolean OR: cats OR felines
Query: I would like information about cats.
In this search, we will retrieve records in which AT LEAST ONE of the search terms is present. We are searching on the terms cats and also felines since documents containing either of these words might be relevant.
This is illustrated by:
OR logic is most commonly used to search for synonymous terms or concepts. It collates the results to retrieve all the unique records containing one term, the other, or both.
|cats OR felines||9,719,805|
The more terms or concepts we combine in a search with OR logic, the more records we will retrieve.
|cats OR felines||9,822,982|
TOPBoolean AND: dyslexia AND adults
Query: I'm interested in dyslexia in adults.
In this search, we retrieve records in which BOTH of the search terms are present. This is illustrated by the shaded area overlapping the two circles representing all the records that contain both the word "dyslexia" and the word "adults". Notice that we do not retrieve any records with only "dyslexia" or only "adults"
|dyslexia AND adults||9,805|
The more terms or concepts we combine in a search with AND logic, the fewer records we will retrieve.
|dyslexia AND adults AND gender||305|
Boolean NOT: cats NOT tigers
Query: I want to see information about cats, but I want to avoid seeing anything about tigers.
In this search, we retrieve records in which ONLY ONE of the terms is present. This is illustrated by the shaded area with the word cats representing all the records containing the word "cats". No records are retrieved in which the word "tigers" appears, even if the word "cats" appears there too.
|cats NOT tigers||6,801,543|
NOT logic excludes records from your search results. Be careful when you use NOT: the term you do want may be present in an important way in documents that also contain the word you wish to avoid.
Find In Context's NEAR search: AND & NOT
Find In Context's native search mode is NEAR, which is an extension of the rules described above. At the heart of it is the closeness of terms within a source document. NEAR is a restrictive AND, with the search words producing a "hit" only when they are close enough to each other. You can fine-tune your searches by adjusting the size of the context window. By reducing the size of the context window, you make the search more restrictive, i.e. the words must be closer to each other to produce a hit. By increasing the window, you allow for more hits to be found.
Similarly, the NOT operator in Find In Context also looks at the closeness of the words to your target. You can exclude hits from the final results based on how far the "unwanted" words are located. If they are in the same context window as the words you want to find, the hit is discarded. However, if the unwanted words are far from the what appears to be a relevant hit, the hit is included in the final results.
These advanced search options allow Find In Context to produce highly relevant search results, and allow you to find whatever you need to in a flash, saving you time and money. See other features and benefits of Find In Context.
