  •  For DMP Editor Managers (Admin), Data Stewards, and Organization Managers, there is a link to an advanced search directly below the search box which will take you to DMP Advanced Search page.  This search supports lucene search syntax that are often 'simply used' by using the connective words 'AND' 'OR'. If you search on Wild Horses, it will return DMPs that contain the words Wild AND Horses. You can narrow your results by adding OrganizationsRecords and Project Names filters. The connective word 'OR' is used with multiple selections within the filter. The connective word 'AND' between each filter. If you search on Wild Horses adding Organizations, Southeast Climate Science Center(SE CSC) OR Western Ecological ResearchCenter (WERC) as well as the Records, New Collection filters. You will return records containing the words Wild AND Horse which will be filtered within Organizations, (SE CSC) OR (WERC) and Records, New Collection.

    However, the link below goes into detail on how to use the lucene reserved characters to create powerful searches:
    The reserved characters are: + - = && || > < ! ( ) { } [ ] ^ " ~ * ? : \ /
