How does MultiSearch rank my results?

Answer:

MultiSearch will rank your results by relevance. 

 

It uses a relevancy-ranking algorithm that includes:

 

  • Term frequency (number of times a search term appears in a search result entry)
  • Term weighting (prioritising some data fields such as subject headings)
  • Popularity (number of times a search result record has been accessed)
  • Currency of the item (most recently published first)
