Quick ProQuest Search Hints

  • Sort by Date (Most recent first) or Relevance
  • Truncation character (*) asterisk - retrieves variations of the search term. Use the truncation character at the end (right-hand truncation, such as simulat*) or in the middle of search terms. Each truncated word can return up to 500 word variations.
  • Wildcard character (?) used to replace any single character, either inside or at the right end of a word.
  • Quotation marks ("signal processing") for exact phrases. Enclose stop words in brackets or quotation marks "near infrared"
  • Use "Recent Searches" to combine previous search statements, using Boolean operators.
    • Combine previous search statements. Examples: (1 AND 3) OR (1 AND 2)
                  3 AND detect*
                       (1 OR 2) AND (3 OR model*)
  • Use nested (with parenthesis) Boolean operators to combine terms
    • OR -- To broaden a search; allow for variant spellings; results include any specified term
      • simulat* OR model* OR mathemat* OR algorithm* [every record contains at least one of these four terms]
    • AND -- To narrow the scope of a search; results contain all specified terms
      • radar AND countermeasure* [both terms must be contained in every record]  
    • NOT -- To eliminate terms (or search statements) from a search
  • Proximity operators
    • near/# (within # words, in any order)
    • pre/# (within # words, in this exact order)
  • Field qualifiers: limit to a specific field, such as author -- AU(Smith), or to multiple fields at one time, such as TI,SU,AB(robot* and wireless*) for restricting keywords to title, subject and abstract fields. Can limit to fields using Advanced Search drop down menus.
  • "Anywhere except full text" (drop down menu) or use NOFT as a field code, such as NOFT(laser pre/3 diode). NOFT - does not search the full text field.
  • Change "Display" -- "results per page" to 100
