2Dsearch offers a new approach to search strategy formulation in which concepts are expressed as objects on a two-dimensional canvas and relationships are articulated using direct manipulation. This eliminates many sources of syntactic error, makes the query semantics more transparent, and offers new ways to optimise, save and share search strategies and best practices.

How 2Dsearch can help:

  • A visual framework which eliminates many errors associated with traditional query builders

  • Search results that update in real-time with hit counts

  • Queries that are analysed with errors detected and corrections offered

  • Support for automated translation of strategies across databases

  • Interactive query suggestions based on MeSH and AI techniques

  • Outputs that may be saved to the cloud and shared as executable links
