  • Use / for OR
    (e.g. art / design)
  • Use ! for NOT
    (e.g. child ! poverty)
  • Use " " to search for a phrase

  • Truncation is automatic
    (e.g. child finds
    children's, etc.)

Special characters:

  • Use >, <, >=, <= for greater or less than
    (e.g. >= 1999 finds dates from 1999 onwards)
  • Use : to search a range
    (e.g. 1999:2003, example:sample)
  • Use the proximity operators w (within) and p (preceding) to find words near each other
