    Search Tips

    • The search engine scans the study descriptions and documentation files of every data collection.
    • Searching is not case sensitive. "Dog" and "dog" return the same results.
    • Use quotation marks to do phrase searching.
    • If you enter multiple words, they are treated as a default Boolean "and" so you get results that have all the words. Boolean operators ("and," "or," and "not") are ignored.
    • Do not use an asterisk (*) to match partial words. The search engine automatically performs "stemming," meaning that partial-word matches should appear in search results (more info).
    • You can narrow your search results by using the facets that appear in the left column on the results page.
