Searches within the Summon service can be performed using two wildcards: the question mark (?) and the asterisk (*).
(?) replaces a single character, so organi?ation will search for organisation and organization (and organination oddly enough)
(*) matches zero to any of number characters of within or at the end of a word. So cat* will include cat, cataclysm, catastrophe and catechism. But ca*t will include cat, catalyst and catchment.
Wildcards cannot be used as the first character of a search, nor should a wildcard be used within double quotes (phrase searching).
One Search will include most common plurals automatically, even women/woman, man/men, mice/mouse.
(~) is a 'proximity operator' - use it to return results that have two words close together in any order so "radiation skin"~3 will return results that include these phrases:
- Radiation-induced skin injuries
- Managing radiation skin injury
- Sarcoma and skin radiation oncology
- Cutaneous radiation syndrome after accidental skin exposure to ionizing radiation
