Topics you added
If you have chosen index terms from the Add topics to search feature, this box lists what you have already selected.
The connector determines how each term relates to the rest of your search. The first term must use AND, but you can change all others by clicking on the connector. The options are OR, AND, and AND NOT.
Each connector relates only to its own term; the other connectors that precede or follow it have no influence on how it is interpreted. For example, if your terms include "
CIVIL INFRINGEMENT ACTIONS
ADMIRALTY LAW," the OR connector does
complete a statement started by the preceding AND NOT connector. The search would return documents that match ADMINISTRATIVE LAW or ADMIRALTY LAW, but not CIVIL INFRINGEMENT ACTIONS. The order of terms has no impact on how they are interpreted in the search.

Relevance: STRONG references only
If you select this checkbox, the index term conditions you set (AND, OR, AND NOT) will only match documents that are strongly related to the term.
The degree to which a document is related to a term is called relevance ranking. Relevance ranking measures the similarity between your index terms and the documents being searched. "Strong" references have a relevance ranking of 85% or more to a term. If you leave this option cleared, the system will match documents that have a relevance ranking of 50% or more.
