If you’re comfortable with search commands—! and * to truncate words and W/n, OR, AND, etc., to connect search words and phrases—you can use these special commands at Lexis Advance®.
Here’s what you should know:
Broaden W/n connectors
While the lexis.com® service ignores certain “noise words,” Lexis Advance® counts all words, even single-letter words like “I.” So broaden your proximity connectors. For example, consider W/10 instead of W/5. For W/p and W/s, consider W/50 or W/15, respectively.
Lexis Advance automatically interprets search commands
Just enter your words and connectors in the Lexis Advance red search box and click Search.
Search Lexis® Web separately
Only the AND connector works. The other commands do not operate in Web documents.
