RC SCHAFER SEARCH TOOL

The RC SCHAFER Search Tool

Now you can locate any information which is stored-in,
or linked-to by the RC SCHAFER section.


The RC SCHAFER Search Tool is designed to search strictly in the RC SCHAFER Section.
It is NOT a web-wide search engine!

If you want to search the rest of Chiro.Org, go to the Chiro.Org Search Page.

HOW do I use this Search Tool?      What is "Boolean Logic"?

The "How-to Search" Section
A search with the phrase "Forward Head Posture"
(capitalized) can yield widely differing results.

NOTE: The Default setting for the search tool is set as
Case:   Insensitive
Construct:   As a Phrase


The following tables explain what happens when you use the Case and Construct drop-downs to modify your search.

In the "Hits" drop-down box, I usually use the "All Hits" selection,
to avoid having to view multiple pages in the search review.

Case:   drop-down box
Case:
Sensitive

NOTE: "Insensitive" usually yields a much larger field of results.

Boolean Logic for Medlines and Search Engines

"Boolean Logic" terms help reduce the number of articles to review
Note: To combine keywords in your search use   "AND",   "OR",   "AND NOT"   or   "NEAR"
Chiropractic AND Research Both words must exist in the document.
Chiropractic OR Research Either word must exist in the document.
Chiropractic AND NOT Research The first word must exist in the document, but the second must not.
Chiropractic NEAR Research

Both words must exist in the document, and be within 50 words of each other. The closer they are, the higher the ranking in the search result.
