Tips for searching the Standardization Monitor
- Search area: The Standardization Monitor searches the following fields in the standardization projects database:
- Title of the standardization project
- Abstract of the standardization project
- Description of the respective standardization body
- Descriptors (=keywords) of the resulting standardization document (are assigned as soon as the document is available as a draft, i.e. late in the process)
- Case sensitivity: The Standardization Monitor search function is not case-sensitive: A search for "Temperatur" (ger) finds both "temperature" and "Raumtemperatur" (ger).
- German, English or French search terms can be specified.
- The database mainly contains German texts, but many standardization projects also have English and/or French abstracts, and a few texts are exclusively available in English.
- The search function is not dependent on the search term language (see above): A search for "Temperatur" (ger) also finds "temperature".
- Search terms in different languages are not cross-referenced against each other: A search for "apple" finds "apple" or "apple tree", but not "Apfel" (ger).
- Search term combination: It is possible to combine up to two search terms. In which case, the Standardization Monitor will perform an "AND" search for both terms. Only standardization projects for which both terms are found are then included in the report.
- Report compilation: Every standardization project is included in the report where at least one of the defined search terms or one of the search term combinations is found.
