    Text Search Formatting

    Here are some examples of how to build a text search filter:

    Multiple terms result in any combination of the terms.

    • ozone layer - retrieves ozone and layer appearing in the text.

    Multiple terms in quotations result in all occurrences of the terms appearing as you entered them.

    • ozone layer- retrieves the term "ozone layer" appearing together

    Operators such as' AND', 'OR', and 'NOT' can be used to further filter. AND retrieves the same results as multiple terms with both terms appearing but not necessarily together.

    • ozone layer
    • ozone + layer
    • ozone AND layer

    OR retrieves any occurrence of one term or the other, or both.

    • ozone OR layer

    NOT specifies a term excluded from the results retrieved. Results include only 'ozone' and not 'layer'.

    • ozone NOT layer
    • ozone ! layer

    Grouping in parentheses can further filter expressions with operators.

    • ((greenhouse OR carbon) AND emissions) - retrieves occurrences of 'greenhouse emissions' OR 'carbon emissions'.

    Wildcards search for single or multiple characters in the beginning, middle, or end of a string.

    • la?er - single character wildcard ? retrieves all occurrences of 'layer' and 'later' for example.
    • lay -* multiple character wildcard * retrieves all occurrences of 'lay', 'lays', 'layer', 'layers' for example.
