SmartText Explained

  • Search any text from any article or document, including:

    • articles within EBSCOhost

    • content from other documents or websites

  • The system analyzes each word in the query for how unique it is

  • Then, a weight is applied to each word

  • Then, a search is initiated using those weights as relevancy controls

  • We are considering future enhancements to let users control those weights themselves
