The search results in LUBsearch are ranked according to the criterias below.

Your search term is found in:

  1. the subjects headings
  2. the title
  3. author-supplied keywords
  4. keywords within abstracts



Exact title matches have the highest rank, but a document can also be ranked high if the search term is frequently used in for example the subject headings or abstract.


Other factors that have influence on the ranking is:

  • Publishing date (more recent articles will rank higher)
  • Length of article (when other factors are equal, a shorter article is considered less valuable)
