Boolean operators list

scandal OR boycott To search for the posts containing at least one of these key-words.

The sign -

-bank For not collecting the publications that contain this word.

Brackets ()

To bring words together. By default the "AND" (space) has the priority on the "OR".

(scandal OR boycott) bank (scandal OR boycott) (banks OR bank) scandal bank -(director OR CEO)

Each line is independent (a new line equals OR with brackets around the line).

It's not necessary to put all the variants with and without capital letter : Visibrain considers all the letter cases variants. On the contrary you need to list the different variant of accentuations (รฉ, ร , รง, รป, รฏ ...). Indeed, Visibrain considers a word with accent differently than the word without accent.
