Search The Animal Communication Project

  • “and” between words is assumed; that is, documents will be retrieved that have all the specified words. If you wish to find all the documents that have any word, use “or” between your search words.

  • To exclude a word, use not. For example, “cat not dog” will find all documents that contain “cat” but not “dog.”

  • To truncate a word, use an asterisk (*) at the end. For example, the search “comput*” would retrieve documents that have the words “computer,” “computing,” “computation,” etc.

  • You may use parentheses to nest search terms. For example, “(cat or mouse) not dog” will find all documents that contain either “cat” or “mouse,” but not “dog.”
