I’ve tested a Google Scholar search both using Safari and DEVONagent. My search entry in both is Polyphony AND (Stutter* OR Stammer*). I’m not sure if all of those operators work, but in any case, I used them in both.
Some returns were identical (as expected) and DEVONagent returned less results (also as expected, since I know it is doing some upfront filtering work for me). What’s curious, however, is that there are many relevant hits using the normal Google Scholar search in my Safari browser, that do not show up in the results or (as far as I can tell) the digest of my DEVONagent search. I have the DEVONagent search set to not follow links, filter archived pages only, No Scanner, and to search in Title, URL, Description, Text, and Keywords.
Any idea why this might be happening? I want to use DEVONagent for my research-specific searches, but I don’t want to miss relevant things in the process. Thanks!
EDIT: I’m also running into the issue that when I hover over “data” in an attempt to “add all to archive,” I only have the option to “add to archive” and it adds the most recent hit I’ve clicked on. When I go to the help menu and search for the “add all to archive” option it highlights the exact place where “add to archive” was and still is if I try to access it without first using the help search(???)
EDIT: Apologies for the continued updates to this query, but I’ve looked at the log and noticed some of the hits I want that show up in the “normal” google scholar search. I then noticed that, in at least one example, the google scholar search on Safari must be drawing from the pdf/article text itself to locate my search terms, whereas DEVONagent limited the extent to which it searched the page/document. Is that easily fixed with a setting change?
