      • Multi-Field Search
    Searching from multiple resources simultaneously we can’t search for subject headings!
  • 36. Basic Search
    • Simply enter a search term or ask a question in ordinary, everyday English terms
    • OvidSP filters the terms of your query, eliminating irrelevant noise words and tightening word choices into validated search terms and phrases.
    • OvidSP utilizes a proprietary medical lexicon to expand validated terms
    • Some useful practices :
      • Don’t use unnecessary adjectives.
      • Don’t use question mark, hyphen, bracket .. .
      • Don’t use Boolean operators for combining records
      • Expect approximately 500 relevancy-ranked results !
  • 37. Advanced Ovid Search
    • We can search for keyword , author, title or journal in a traditional way.
    • Using Boolean operators we can specify our searching.
    • For receiving more relevant results use your query as Subject Heading . It is only available when you choose only one database .
  • 38. Basic Search and Advanced Ovid Search
    • Basic Search
      • - It is a natural language search. Enter your search terms in plain English .
      • - It is NOT a simple version of Advanced Search !!!
