How does PwC Plus search work?

With PwC Plus search you have accurate research facilities at your fingertips.  You can either filter your search term by special criteria or use in addition the faceted search to narrow your search results.

Please note: The system adjusts or shortens the search queries if necessary (e.g. if they are very long).

Phrase search with quotation marks:

You can look for the entered search terms in quotation marks (" ") if you ask for entire phrases or an exact expression, e.g. "Implementing Technical Standards".

Boolean Operators - OR, AND, NOT:

  • If you use more than one term in the free text search they are combined automatically with “OR” which gives the union of the search terms (e.g. Verbriefung OR Securitisation or Verbriefung Securitisation).
    At least one of the entered search terms must be included, this is especially useful when searching for different spellings or the same term in different languages.
  • By using the operator "AND", you get the intersection of the search terms (e.g. Implementing AND Technical AND Standards).
  • If you enter several search terms combined with “NOT” or the minus sign operator (-search term), the search term after the NOT or the minus (-) will be excluded from your results (e.g. Implementing NOT Technical or Implementing –Technical).

IMPORTANT: For the operators to be recognized, they must be written in capital letters! Using AND and NOT only the exact notation is considered.

Use of capital and small initial letters:

Case-sensitivity does not need to be considered when formulating the search queries (e.g. IFRS or ifrs has the same search results).

Show the search results:

You can sort your search results either according to relevance or publication date. By default, relevance is selected.
