Basic Search Tips
- The Ovid search engine applies so-called "run-time stopword processing"., which means the search engine on the fly ignores stopwords (e.g., and, as, by, for, from, in, is, of, on, that, the, this, to, was, were, with).
- Unlimited truncation retrieves all possible suffix variations of the root word indicated. To apply unlimited truncation to a term, type the root word or phrase followed by either a dollar sign ($) or a colon (:). For example, searching for disease$ will return search results with the word "disease", "diseases", "diseased", and more.
