Advanced search allows all the search features of the underlying search engine, Solr, to be used in conjunction with our data. You can use Solr query syntax in conjunction with our entire schema. One important difference between Advanced Search and normal smartsearch is that you can only use a single field qualifier in a smartsearch.
The Advanced Search implementation is still experimental, a work in progress.
The simple way to invoke Advanced Query is in SmartSearch, start the query with the string:
Please note the required double colon after adv
Following the “adv::” string to label the query advanced, enter a standard Solr query suitable for the “q” parameter of the Solr API.
A simple example: articles with 10 to 20 references, and the word Pleasure in the title.
adv::reference_count:[10 TO 20] AND title:Pleasure
More examples: Ego but not id, and not superego, and not Freud. All three of these are the same query in our Advanced Solr syntax, using Boolean logic equivalencies.
adv::ego AND -id AND -superego AND -Freud
adv::ego AND NOT(id OR superego OR Freud)
adv::ego AND NOT id AND NOT superego AND NOT Freud
