Truncation allows you to search a word in its varying forms. To use truncation, type the root of the word and place the truncation symbol (often an *) behind it.
Searching for accura* will include sources that use the term accurate and the term accuracy.

Popular journals or magazines are written for a non-scholarly audience and tend to contain advertisements and full-color illustrations or photographs. (Nuts & Volts. Popular Mechanics.)
Trade journals contain current information and practical advice within a specific profession or industry. (ASEE Prism. Design News. Engineering News Record.)
Scholarly journals are peer-reviewed journals containing original research within a field. Articles are detailed in nature and cite other previously-published works within the field. (Journal of Materials Science. J. of Chemical & Engineering Data, Heat and Mass Transfer)
