A truncation symbol in Sociological Abstracts
is an asterisk
( * ), and when this symbol is put at the end of a word,
the database will be searched for all of
the possible endings--suffixes--for that word.
For example, the command soci* will search
for both the word social, sociology, sociological,
Two Boolean operators that are key to find information
are AND and OR.
The AND is used to connect two different
concepts and the OR is used between synonymous concepts.
It is critical to put parentheses around a search expression
that contains an OR. Here is an example:
(homeless* or runaway*)
(policy or policies)
The first part of this statement will find material about
homeless adults or adolescents living on the street.
The second part will look
for the words "policy" or "policies".
then links the first set with the second.
This may find information about polices addressing both adult and youth homelessness.
