Search Terms are the things that you enter into the search form that tell the search engine what things to look for in the papers at this site. The search engine immediately breaks the terms up into individual words and find all papers that have each word in them (a Boolean OR or NOT search would work differently). The terms should be entered as simple words (or numbers), not in quotations nor separated by commas or other symbols. Each one of your search terms should be keywords specific to a paper you need. Finally, remember to make sure your search terms are spelled correctly or the search engine will not find any matches (assuming the words are spelled correctly in the papers). You can check spelling online at WWWebster\'s Dictionary.



Choosing the proper category is the most important thing you need to do before searching, because all the papers at Cyber Essays are categorized very strictly and an error in choosing the category will likely give you no results. Here is a list of the available categories and a description of the content of each one so you can search all our papers accurately.

Arts - This section contains papers having anything to do the fine arts, such as papers on film, music, and biographies of famous artisans. This section has the fewest papers of any major section, so consider other ones before searching here. Section(s) commonly confused with the Arts Section: English.

English - This section contains papers having anything to do with literature, including book reports, creative writing, poetry, plays, novels, Shakespeare, and biographies on famous writers and poets. Section(s) commonly confused with the English Section: Arts, Politics, and History.

History - This section contains papers having anything to do with world history, including papers the history of every region in the world, the history of religion and related topics, major historical and political events and conflicts, and biographies of major past and present world figures. Every time you search this section, search Politics also because they are almost interchangable in many areas. Section(s) commonly confused with the History Section: Politics and English.

Politics - This section contains papers that are not necessarily political, but involve social issues, moral issues, current events, and other highly debated topics. For example, his would be the place to find papers on abortion, euthanasia, etc. Section(s) commonly confused with the Politics Section: History and English.

Science - This section contains papers that are at all related to science, medicine, biology, chemistry, the environment, or any other technical science. This section also deals with famous scientict and thikers or our world. Section(s) commonly confused with the Science Section: Others.

Others - This section contains papers that do not fit well into any of the other categories. Search this section only if you do not find anything on your topic elsewhere as this section does not generally have too many papers. Section(s) commonly confused with the Others Section: Politics and Science.



Since our search is designed to be lightning-fast and extremely accurate, it is programmed to scan every query and weed out words that are either too short to be of importance or words that occur so often in each paper that they become useless in narrowing down your request. Currently our search engine ignores any word whose length is less than three letters long (i.e. "the" is not ignored but "it" would be) and ignores any word that appears in over 80% of papers in that section. Anytime a word is ignored for either reason, this will be displayed at the top of your results and your results will be papers that have the un-ignored words in them.


Boolean Matches

By default, our search matches a series of words separated by spaces using the Boolean AND match type. This means that if your query is "vietnam war", the search will only find you the papers that have in them "vietnam" AND "war". This is the best match type in most cases, but if you have a special search specification, our search allows you to use the OR and NOT Boolean match types as well.

Russia OR Communism - Papers that contain either the word "Russia" or "Communism".

Russia NOT Communism - Papers that contain the word "Russia" but not "Communism"
