In order to help you easily locate the references you require within our list of titles, vLex has included the search box across its site. All our pages include a direct access to the search box, located at the top of each page.
Our search engine is a powerful search tool which will enable you to find, easily and directly, any document or reference you need.
The search tool allows you to operate with simple terms, compound terms and operators:
- Enter the search terms and the search engine will return the results available for any of the fields (titles, text, authors, etc).
- Harness the power offered by operators to make complex searches in our databases. For further information regarding how to use operators on our system, please read this article.
For advanced or complex searches, we recommend you use the advanced version of our search engine, accessible via the Advanced Search tab. With this option you can create complex queries in an intuitive, visual manner.
In order to improve the relevance of the results obtained and improve your productivity, our search engine makes searches within the context of the content you are querying. This way, you can make a preliminary segmentation of the content you wish to search for using the browser menu. Then, when you have found a document or a generic category of documents, you can use the search engine within that context to narrow down the search as much as possible.
An example of this kind of contextual search is obtained when browsing through a book or journal. All searches made at this point will only refer to the document you are browsing through. This means results will be much more relevant to your search.
Remember you can always expand the scope of your search by modifying the option that appears on the search engine, as shown below
