Tips

Advanced search: AND = less results, more specific. Example: stress AND college students AND finals
Advanced search: NOT = less results, but not as few as AND. Example, school NOT public.
Advanced Search: OR = more results. Example: college OR university.
Full Text: not seeing where to read an article? Check your filters for a full-text limiter.
Spotting a research report: look for abstract, introduction, methods, participants, procedure, results, and discussion as sections.
