  • Truncation

  • Truncation can be used in a number of different ways. Truncate the end of a word in order to retrieve all mentions of the word (singular and plural). In cases of irregular plurals, or to retrieve all forms of a root word, use the asterisk (*) to retrieve more than one character. Use internal truncation or wildcard characters to retrieve alternate or British spellings of words. Truncate after at least three characters.

  • ? = one character only

  • $ = zero or one character

  • * = zero or more characters

See Handout Page : 13

Journal impact factor l.jpg

  • is calculated by dividing the number of current citations to articles published in the two previous years by the total number of articles published in the two previous years.

26 August 2004

Chinese researchers reported this January that the strain of the bird flu virus involved, known as H5N1, had infected pigs. This is a cause for concern, as some virologists believe that previous human flu pandemics, such as the one in 1918 that killed millions, originated in pigs. Yet neither the World Health Organization (WHO) nor the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was aware of the results when they were published. Last week both groups were hurriedly trying to get the papers translated.
