To expland the All Fields box, place your cursor over the lines in the right bottom corner of the box and drag to expand the size of the search box.
If you use MS Word to construct search strategies and include quotation marks, do not paste 'smart quotes' into POPLINE. A text editor is the better option for designing your search criteria
POPLINE's search engine does not support the use of quoted phrases using wildcards. For example, if you want to search "patient outcome*" you have to enter each variant separately: "patient outcome" OR "patient outcomes"
Enter Boolean operators ( AND, OR, NOT) in uppercase characters to combine search terms or phrases.
Click the green plus sign to add a new field of the same type. Boolean operators can be changed at left.
Click the Add New Field link to add a new field of a different type. Boolean operators can be changed at right.
Order of Precedence: Boolean operators on the left are executed BEFORE operators on the right.
For more complex searching of multiple concepts, click the blue Add New Search Group button to add a new search group to be combined with your initial search group.
For accurate results searching multi-word terms, place within quotation marks. The search engine will automatically insert an AND between multi-word terms without quotes. (Ex: "Barrier method*" OR "health care" OR "South Sudan" )
