The Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings can be searched by:
keyword(s): in the language of the article, i.e. Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish
author’s name(s): name, first name
Basically, the platform performs logical AND search. That means all the words you put in the query will be used. Search is always case insensitive.
Advanced search query syntaxes are described below. All of the syntaxes can be combined together.
You can attach a minus sign ' - ' immediately before a keyword to exclude pages that contain this keyword from your search results. For example, the query 'literary -intermedial' will find pages which contain “literary” but do not contain “intermedial”.
You can use this syntax ' - ' not just for a keyword, but also for a partial matching, a phrase search, a namespace search and a grouping search described below. For example, you can use the query '-“phrase you want to exclude”' to exclude exact phrase.
You can perform a partial matching by prefixing and/or suffixing an asterisk ' * ' to a keyword. For example, searching for 'medial' will only find “medial”, but searching for ' *medial ' will also find “intermedial” (suffix matching). You can also perform ' inter* ' (prefix matching) and ' *terme* ' (partial matching).
Note that ' * ' is not a “wildcard”. You can't use it within a keyword, i.e. searching 'inter*ia' will not find anything for you.
You can search for exact phrases by putting double quotes around a set of words, e.g. “aesthetic borders between vicinity and distance”.
By default the platform performs a logical AND search, but you can also use a logical OR search by using ' | ' or 'or' as a separator of your search terms. For example, the query 'intermedial | multimodal' will find pages which contain either “intermedial” or “multimodal” or both. The query 'plugin or template' will do the same thing. You may use OR as a simple alternative to partial matching (*), e.g. in finding pages about people with spelling variations as ' Frank | Fränk'.
The OR operator has a lower precedence than the default AND operator. That is, the query 'literary intermedial | multimodal ' can be represented as '(literary intermedial) | multimodal', not as 'literary (intermedial | multimodal)'. Instead, use a grouping syntax as described below.
You can group search terms by enclosing terms with parentheses ' ( … ) '. Having the highest precedence, parentheses may be used to force precedence.
