Working with your Search Results

About your Search Results

Once you have entered your search criteria and processed your search, your search results list will display.
At this point, you will have the option to open a single document or to select multiple documents to email or print. You will also have the option to narrow down the displayed results by using the following:

·         the document type tabs at the top of the search results list (i.e. commentary, judgments, Recent Developments, legislation, and Conventions)
Note: Some services may only have a few of the document type tabs listed above.
or,

·         the search results filters to the left of the search results list. The number behind a filter term shows the total number of occurrences of a search term. There can be more than 1 occurrence within a document.

Your search term will be highlighted once you click a link to a selected analytical text or document.

The numbers between brackets in the filters and document type tabs indicate the number of occurences;
as a document type occurs only once in a document, the number of document type occurences equals the number of documents.
For the other filters counts that in one document a term can occur multiple times and hence for these filters the number of occurences does not equal the number of documents.

Search Tips

Using Wildcards

The Asterisk (*) Wildcard

When using an Asterisk (*) Wildcard, type an asterisk (*) in place of a character in your search term to indicate that any number of characters can be substituted in place of the asterisk.
For example, if you type novel* as your search term, your results will include novels, novelty, novelties, etc.

The Double Quotes (“ ”) Wildcard

Use double quotes (" ") to define a phrase rather than a simple collection of terms.

Return to Top

Examples of using symbols

Used symbol

Result

"computer software"

Will find occurrences of the phrase 'computer software', i.e. the combination of 'computer' with software, but not each of the two words separately and on their own

Engine*

Will find occurrences of 'engines', 'engineering', etc.

Ira*

Will find occurrences of 'Iran' and/or Iraq

Banned symbols and words

Some symbols cannot be used in any of the search fields - they will cause the search to return an error message. These symbols mostly comprise of non-English characters like:
Banned Symbols
Also some words or phrases are banned, e.g. double, string, float, int.
Note: if you want to use these banned symbols or words, put them within double quotation marks(" ").

Return to Top

Using Boolean Operators

Boolean operators are symbols or words that are used to combine different kinds of searches within one field.
You can use the following Boolean operators to refine your search term(s):

·         AND
Use AND to search for documents containing each term at least once.

·         OR
Use OR to search for documents containing at least one of the terms.

·         AND NOT
Use AND NOT to search for documents containing the first term but not the second term. Please note that the system will automatically change NOT into AND NOT.

·         NEAR
Use NEAR to search for documents with the first term and the second term, and with maximal 4 words between them.

Precedence of Boolean operators

The precedence of the Boolean operators that can be used in the quick search is as follows: NOT, NEAR, AND, OR.

Queries like ‘x near y and z near a’ are processed from left to right and operators are handled in order of precedence. Operator NOT has the highest rank, while operator OR has the lowest.

In example 'x near y and z near a', operator 'near' has precedence over 'and', so the order of processing will be:

1.    x near y

2.    z near a

3.    'result of 1' and 'result of 2'

Another example: 'a near b and not c' is processed like this:

1.    a near b

2.    not c

3.    'result of 1' and 'result of 2'

Return to Top

Examples of Using Boolean Operators

·         computer AND software
Will find hits in which both 'computer' and 'software' occur either combined or not combined.

·         software OR programs
Will find hits in which either ‘software’ or ‘programs’ or both occur at least once.

·         software AND NOT programs
Will find hits in which only the term 'software’ occurs and not the term ‘programs.’

·         computer AND software AND NOT programs
Will find hits in which both the terms 'computer' and 'software' occur, separately or combined, but not the term 'programs'
