Searching guidance

  • A “word” is any sequence of letters, numbers, “'”, and “_”.
  • The word “and” is always used in the title rather than the character “&”.
  • Queries can be one or more words.
  • Words shorter than four characters are ignored.
  • Stemming is not supported.
  • The search engine does not support Boolean or proximity searches (ie using AND, OR, NOT, NEAR).
  • In the full text search, every valid word in the Index of IS Journals and in the query is weighted, according to its significance in the query or Index of IS Journals. This way, a word that is present in many journal details entries will have lower weight (and may even have a zero weight), because it has lower semantic value in the Index of IS Journals - “information” and “systems” spring to mind! Otherwise, if the word is rare, it will receive a higher weight. The weights of the words are then combined to compute the relevance of the entry.
  • "Approved according to pre 2006 Australian Govt requirements" means that the journal satisfies the pre-RQF requirements of being on the DEST list, or the ISI list or refereed according to Ulrich's.
