2Dsearch offers an alternative approach in which structured searches can be created by combining Boolean blocks on a two-dimensional canvas. The simplicity, clarity and transparency of the visual approach makes it an ideal tool for understanding the fundamentals of Boolean logic and learning how to create more effective searches.

How 2Dsearch can help:

  • A visual approach which eliminates many errors associated with traditional Boolean strings

  • Searches are analysed and common errors detected and corrections offered

  • Support for searches across Google Scholar and many specialist databases

  • AI-powered query suggestions to help you test and refine your search

  • Outputs that may be shared as executable links or exported as traditional Boolean strings
