Search shortcuts for Tourism topics

The asterisk (*) is a wildcard symbol in the Discovery Search and other EBSCO databases (e.g. Hospitality & Tourism Complete, Business Source Ultimate). This is useful for capturing spelling variations and plural forms.

Examples:

tour* captures tour, tours, tourism, tourisms, tourist, tourists, touristic

motivat* captures motivate, motivates, motivation, motivations

wom*n captures singular and plural forms (woman and women)

neighbo*r captures Canadian (neighbour) and US (neighbor) spellings

However, hospital* does not work well to capture hospitality topics because it will also capture medical hospital and hospitals.
