Discovery Quick Tips
Use Boolean Operators
AND - to narrow your search.
OR - to expand your search.
NOT - to exclude terms from you search.
Exclude Content Type
Try excluding newspaper articles or book reviews if you are looking for full-text only articles. They make up a lot of results when included and can slow down your search. They may be useful when doing a scan of literature however, so pick and choose when to include them.
