search help


  • By default the search system will look for each word separately (and some stop-words will be skipped over).
  • To search for phrases, put double quotes around the words.
  • The search-tab buttons allow for quickly viewing the search-results from various other sites (currently: Wikipedia,, YouTube and science journals).
  • The random-search button will give you an algorithmically created search-query.


  • The number of search hits shown are always based on the individual-word-hits, even when doing phrase-searching.
  • External site-searches that combine phrase and word search together in the same query are not yet well supported.
