Search Tips

To look for articles on more than one topic use and AND search, e.g. to find articles on diabetes and high blood pressure enter diabetes in one search box, ensure AND is selected between the search boxes and enter high blood pressure in the second box.

To search for more than one concept add another field to your search. To search for many different variations of a word enter them into the same search box, e.g. to find articles on old people or elderly or geriatric enter old people or elderly or geriatric into one search box.

You can search for your keywords to be in the title, anywhere, author or keywords of an article by changing the drop down menu next to the search box. A title search will give you a small number of very relevant results. Searching for your terms as keywords will give you a larger number of results but they may be less relevant.

Truncation searching is available, enter a * symbol after your search term, e.g. nurs* will find nurse, nurses, nursing and nursed.
