There are a number of ways of refining your search results by selecting the options on the left of the screen. For example, you can choose to retrieve only full-text sources or to view only peer-reviewed (academic) material. Using these options will reduce the number of search results significantly.
The Full Text option includes material which might be available through a library subscription or free material and could be an article from a journal, a paper from conference proceedings or a report.
There are many other options available to refine results further, for example, by date (using the slider), publication type, subject, language etc.
USearch has been set to search plurals and synonyms automatically (ie. ‘Apply related words’). Search terms may also be combined using the connectors and, or, not and phrase searching is available using double quotation marks eg. “crime prevention”.
