How to use
The search field in Max-EuP2012 enables search methods known from platforms such as Wikipedia:
- Queries are made via a search bar and are activated by pressing the enter key or by clicking on the magnifying glass symbol.
- As word input progresses, the search function suggests all matching keywords available in the work.
- Do not distinguish between upper- and lower-case characters.
- The search function uses whole words. Thus, a search for jurisdiction will not return hits for pages that contain only the word jurisdictional.
- Only pages containing all entered search terms will be found.
- Word components can be searched for by using a truncation character (*). Thus, a search for jurisdiction* will return hits for jurisdictional.
- Phrases or word groups can be searched for with quotation marks. This function works only with whole words. The use of truncation characters and quotation marks cannot be combined. Thus, “conflict of law” and “conflict of law*” will not return hits for conflict of laws.
The systematic linking of all entries functions as follows:
- Cross-references to other keywords are highlighted in the text and can be accessed by clicking on them.
- Reverse references to the displayed keyword can be displayed and called up via the menu icon .
- When a keyword is also available in a German language version (HWB-EuP 2009), the corresponding entry can be retrieved via the menu option "In Other Languages".
