Adding a wildcard (* or ?) to a search key slows down the search process.
Active Paper Archive (APA)
- Wildcard search is always heavier than regular search.
- The wildcard is entered prior to the keyword.
- The search process doesn't use any indexes for a match.
- Suggest using additional filters (date, publication, etc.) to limit the search scope.
- Place the wildcard at the end of the keyword. Example: Use archiv* instead of *rchive.
