Truncation

Truncation means finding all terms that begin with a given text string. Place an dollar ($) sign at the end of a term to search for all terms that begin with that word; for instance bacter$ will find all terms that begin with the letters bacter; e.g., bacteria, bacterium, bacteriophage, etc.
 

Operators

When there is more than one word or term in the same line, or from one line to the other, they must be separated by a boolean operator in order to be related one to the other. To type more than one word in the same line, it is necessary to use a boolean operator so as to relate one to the other.

Boolean Operators are AND, OR, and NOT are available.
