The truncation symbol in Worldwide Political Science 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 terror* will search
for the words terror, terrors, terrorism, terrorist, terroristic.
Two Boolean operators that are important in finding information
are AND and OR.
The AND is used to connect two different
concepts and the OR is used between concepts that are synonymous.
It is critical to put parentheses around a search expression
that contains an OR. Here is an example:
(terror* or sabot*)
and (policy or policies)
The first part of this statement will find material about
terrorism or terrorist or saboteur or saboteurs.
The second part will look
for the words "policy" or "policies".
then links the first set with the second.
This should be an effective
way to look for polices dealing with terrorist and sabotage issues.
