Search Term Expansion with Wikipedia / Wikidata

Search terms in EconBiz are expanded automatically by synonyms or translations from the Thesaurus for Economics (STW). Searching for "Canned food", you will also find hits that contain the subject heading "Preserved food" from the STW.

With the new version 9.06 of the STW, Wikipedia-redirects are added to this feature of STW search term expansion through Wikidata. If a title contains the STW subject heading "CIS countries", you will find it now by searching for "Commonwealth of Independent States".

The recall of result lists in EconBiz is strongly enhanced with this new feature of the STW.
