You can use wildcard characters if you are not sure of the spelling of your search term to expand your search:
The asterisk is useful for matching terms with the same root or prefix. For example, if you are not sure how to spell zoopraxiscope, you can submit this query:
This query finds pages that match zoopraxiscope, as well as pages that match terms like zoophyte and zooplasty. Once you have found the correct spelling of zoopraxiscope, you can submit a new query to limit the search to the pages that interest you.
The question mark is useful to substitute for characters in a particular position in a term. For example, if you are searching for a document referring to someone named Fleiss but you are not sure if the name is spelled Fleiss or Fliess, use this query:
PsychSpider finds pages that contain either Fleiss or Fliess.
If you want to use wildcard characters, be sure not to enclose the term with quotation marks, because the wildcard would then be treated as part of the term.
Tip of the week: Search Engines like PsychSpider follow links within documents to gather more documents. A document can only be found by the search engine, if a hyperlink exists or the search engine knows the exact URL. If you can't find a specific document (i.e. "Psychoanalyse im Wandel der Zeit"), but you know who has published it (i.e. Universität Trier), PsychSpider might help you to get a contact address, so you will be able to request the document via telephone, letter or E-Mail.
If you maintain or know of a server with relevant psychological information, please submit the website for crawling.
