Engineering Village has a new search engine

on Tue, 09/15/2020 - 13:43

Engineering Village is migrating to a new search engine. The new engine will enable the Engineering Village platform to better leverage new search technologies in the future.  After completion of several rounds of customer trials and feedback, the new search engine will be rolled out to all customers on September 30, 2020.  

New features and benefits 

The new search engine will offer several benefits to Engineering Village users: 

  • Fresh indexing of existing content to "fix" some common issues, such as the ability to search only the first author of a publication and better handling of special characters.   
  • Special characters will be properly accounted for, (such as the “+” characters in C++) which may provide an expanded list of search results to users. 
  • In addition to some instant benefits, the new search engine will allow us to implement many more modern search features in near future, such as phrase boosting and regular expression searching.  

Content and user experience remain unchanged. 

There are no changes to the content on engineering village, and the platform will remain fully available during the transition. Saved searches will remain available search alerts for saved searches will continue to run without interruptions. There will be no changes to the Engineering Village expert syntax. Existing valid searches will continue to be correctly parsed and executed.
