  • Use AND to narrow your search. For example, using "adolescence AND anxiety" will find articles with both terms, giving your more specific results.
  • Use OR to broaden your results, such as using "adolescence OR teen" will find articles with either term, giving you more results.
  • Use NOT to filter out results with terms you don't need. For example "adolescence NOT child" will filter out articles with the term "child".

Truncation (*): The "*" replaces any number of characters and will find all forms of a word root. For example, "therap*" will find therapies, therapist, therapists, therapeutic, therapeutically, etc.

Wildcard (#): The "#" replaces extra characters that may appear in alternative spellings. For example, "colo#r" finds both color and colour

Wildcard (?): The "?" replaces one character. For example, "ne?t" finds neat, nest, or next, but will not find not.
