Since querying the database for a list of terms as 'or' query takes quite some time, we treat each query by default as a phrase query. Example: If you enter 'Semantic Web' as query term, we only search for publications containing the phrase 'Semantic Web' and do not return publications containing 'semantic' or 'web' only.
You can disable such automatically generated phrases by clicking this checkbox.
Researchers working at L3S may already have published some publication prior to joining L3S. Such publications are considered 'private' and occur on the private publication page of each researcher, they are not considered 'L3S publications'. You can be include such private publications in the search by enabling this checkbox.
Currently, the result list is ordered by matches, i.e. how often they query term is contained in the title, the abstract, the authors' names, the venue title, or the keywords. We are planning to provide a set of alternative sort options soon.
