This article provides an overview of PESWiki search feature, as well as using external search engines, to find information.

The best way to search PESWiki is with Google. Just enter: <PESWiki thing searching for>

The search box here at PESWiki has sever limintations.

When you put in a badly formed search query, PESWiki cannot process your query. This is probably because you have attempted to search for a word fewer than three letters long, which is not yet supported. It could also be that you have mistyped the expression, for example "power and and energy". Below are few good tips and hints for using the PESWiki search feature effectively.

Effective searching

The quickest way to find information here is to look it up on Google. Just enter: <PESWiki thing searching for>

But if you insist on using our search feature on the left, notice that the search box has two buttons under it labeled "Go" and "Search". Just type something into the box, like Testatika, and press enter or click the Go button. This will take you directly to PESWiki article on Testatika.

Avoid short and common words in search terms include a common "stop word" (such as "the", "one", "your", "more", "right", "while", "when", "who", "which", "such", "every", "about") it may give a large number of non-relevant results. Historically, these words could not be searched at all PESWiki index does not use "stop words", so any word can be successfully used in search queries. Lucene still doesn't search for numbers.

Wildcards can be use it a limited extent. Look up "fulltext search" on and look down under 'boolean search' for the details. However, wildcard searches are slower, so go easy on the poor server.

If no such article exists, or if you accidentally press the "Search" button instead of the Go button, our search engine will do its best to help you along. If that isn't working for you, you could try an external search engine.


If you're looking for a straight definition, google's Define: is a good choice. Also the project Wiktionary can be helpful, but is not as comprehensive as

External search engines

Various search engines can provide domain-specific searches, which lets you search PESWiki specifically. Searches are based on the text as shown by the browser, so wiki markup is irrelevant. Depending on your browser, you may also be able to use tools that allow you to search PESWiki using bookmarklets.

In general, external search engines are faster than a PESWiki search. However, because the search engine's cache is based on when the site was indexed, the search may not return newly created pages. Similarly, the search engine's cached version of the page will not be as up-to-date as the link to PESWiki itself. Also, when returning PESWiki articles in a regular search. These issues may be less of a problem when using certain search engines that process PESWiki differently.

  • Types of People Search Sites - Ways to locate all the people mentioned here + lots of other scientists. I've been quite surprised how many academic professor I could reach by just finding their email address and writing to them ...


Some things can be called by many names. One Item could be called under a different title, one of a dozen similar things. In this case, if you type any of those in, you will be redirected to the proper place. You're welcome. If instead of being redirected you're taken to a search menu, that means that nobody thought of that way of writing it. Just try another form, or try something related to it.
