Search Hints

  • Entering a keyword or term will return a list of citations. Because the search terms are automatically linked by and, this list will contain only those citations having ALL of the terms for the fields indicated.
  • Do separate searches for commonly abbreviated terms. Search abbreviations first (e.g. AIDS, HIV). Next search for the full terms (e.g. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Human Immunodeficiency virus).

Keywords / Title / Abstract Searches:

  • Example 1: economic
    - This search will look for all words that contain the root 'economic' (i.e. economic, economics, economical, etc.)
  • Example 2: cost-benefit analysis
    - Combinations of phrases are searched with and without hyphens/spaces. This search would also find cost benefit analysis, etc.

Author Searches:

  • Enter one author per field and in the format Lastname, FM
  • First (F) and middle (M) initials are optional.
  • Combinations of last names with/without hyphens/spaces are searched. For example, van Hout, BA also searches for van-Hout, BA
  • Match case cannot be used with author searches.
