Exact Match Search Type

The exact match search type is supported by the GET /{custid}/titles endpoint. It can be used with any of the search fields. The exact match search type performs a "TERM" search to look for your exact search term in its entirety. If there is a match, then it retrieves the list of titles matching the whole term in its entirety. So, only when the result contains an exact match to the search term will a result be returned. For example, use searchtype=exactmatch and search=Natural Neuroscience to return the title that matches the whole title name Natural Neuroscience.
