Search Tips and Tricks

Search Tips and Examples to achieve better search results. In general, try and use discriminating terms that are likely to be found only in the documents you seek. The more words you give, the better results you'll get. Here are some examples:

  1. Search by typing words and phrases:
  2. weather and climate impacts

    The search engine will find documents containing as many of these words and phrases as possible, ranked so that the documents most relevant to your query are presented first. In this example, returned results will include pages containing all or parts of the phrase weather and climate impacts, such as:

    • any page containing the phrase climate impacts; or
    • any page containing the words climate and impacts - (the words do not have to appear adjacent to each other); or
    • any page containing the word weather; etc.

  3. Identify phrases with quotation marks, separate with commas:
  4. "climate scenarios", "emissions uncertainties"

    Enter a phrase using double quotation marks, and the search engine will find only matches to those specific words in that exact order. Separate multiple phrases or proper names with a comma. In this example, returned results will include:

    • pages containing only the phrase climate scenarios or emissions uncertainties (or both).

  5. Use UPPER case to indicate exact match:
  6. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

    Search terms in lowercase will match words in any case, otherwise, an exact case match is used. For example:

    • climate will find matches for climate and Climate
    • whereas a query for Climate will only match Climate.
