Description: Information on how to search smart on Wavelength.
(Click here to search Wavelength)

Welcome to the new Wavelength Search feature. This pretty powerful tool searches all articles in the database. There are some things you should know when searching Wavelength:
  • If your search returns too many articles (over 50% of all articles), you will get no results. If you want to force the search to return the results, add a boolean operator (documented below).
  • This tool will search the title, description, and content of an article and will return a "score". You can compare each result's score to see how much more/less an article matches your query.


Boolean Operators:
  • A leading + indicates that this word must be included in the result.
  • A leading - indicates that this word must NOT be included in the result.
  • Leading > and < operators increase or decrease the relevance of the word.
  • A leading ~ gives the word a negative score.
  • ( and ) are used to group subexpressions
  • * (which should be at the end of the word, not leading) indicates that this is only the beginning of the word.
  • Quotation marks " " match a phrase in whole.
