Using Advanced Search allows you to search only the journals available to ERAU students, faculty, and staff.
A free, optional account is available and offers access to additional tools such as email alerts, saved searches and favorite journals. To create an account, click Sign in at the top of the page, then follow the instructions in the "Sign Up" section.
To search for documents containing an exact word or phrase, enclose the term in quotation marks. Example: "climate change"
Use parentheses to group terms and Boolean operators as needed. Expressions within parentheses are evaluated first. Example: enter the following query to search for documents containing flood and also containing either climate or weather: flood AND (climate OR weather)
To search for documents containing two or more terms that appear within a certain distance of each other, put quotation marks around the terms followed by a tilde (~) and a number to indicate the maximum number of words apart that the terms can be. Example: to find documents containing the terms climate and change within ten words of one another, enter the query: "climate change"~10
Search results are listed in order of relevance. Users can increase the relevance of one term in a multiple-term query by raising the term’s boost factor. Raise a term’s boost factor by appending a caret symbol (^) and a number (the boost factor). Example: entering the query climate^7 global gives the term climate seven times more relevance than the term global.
