A symbol put at the end or in the middle of a word to catch variant endings or spellings of that word when searching a database If you are searching for information on computers, and you want to make sure you pick up any words with the word computer or computing or computerized, you would put a truncation symbol at the point in the word where various endings can begin to occur (e g comput*) Databases use various symbols to represent truncation such as *, ?, +, !, # Some databases, like IDEAL, truncate automatically Some databases allow for truncation symbols in the middle of the word to pick up variant spellings For instance, entering behario?r would retrieve behavior and behaviour
The use of a symbol to search only part of a term to retrieve variant endings of that term The truncation symbol in PubMed is "* "
The addition of a symbol to a word root in a keyword search to retrieve variant endings on the root Truncation is particularly useful in retrieving both the singular and the plural forms of a word in the same search In most online catalogs and electronic databases, the truncation symbol is the asterisk (*), although other symbols may be used
Databases often offer the option of using a special symbol at the end of a root in order to retrieve various words using that root For example, searching environment* in AUCAT will retrieve environments, environmental, and environmentally BEWARE of truncating a work too early For instance stat? would retrieve statistics, statistically, stature, statue, state, states, stately, stationary, etc To determine the truncation symbol used in a particular database, check the cheat sheet for that database

the process of shortening or cutting off part of a keyword The keyword is shortened so that it will match with all terms starting with the same stem, e g librar* will match with library, libraries, librarian, librarianship, etc
The method of using a special symbol at the end of a word to retrieve the stem or the root and all possible endings of that word To truncate a word while searching Expanded Academic or other InfoTrac databases, use an asterisk (*); entering comput* will retrieve compute, computes, computing, computer, computers, and so on In other databases, the question mark (?), the pound sign (#), or the dollar sign ($) can be used to truncate terms
A method used to retrieve all variations of a word Truncation symbols vary from search engine to search engine (and database to database) Common symbols include*, ?, # Example: comput* will retrieve compute, computers, computing, computerize, computerization, and computation Not all databases or search engines allow for truncation; read the help screens to find out what symbol different search tools use, and whether they accept truncation In many cases, truncation is an advanced search strategy

Typing a specific symbol at the end of a word to retrieve all possible endings of that word Different databases have different truncation symbols This also includes shortening or cutting off part of a keyword ( the root word ) so that it will match with all terms starting with the same root (or stem) ( Example: comput* will match with computer, computers, computerize, computing, etc ) Frequently used symbols for truncation include the asterisk (*), the pound sign (#), or the questions mark (?) Check the HELP section in the database for specific guidelines
In database searching, the addition of a symbol at the end of a word so the computer will look for all variations of the word You can use the characters "?" or "*" after the root "famil?" and the computer will consider "family" and "families "
