    • Confirm your spelling. Typos are the most frequent cause of inaccurate results.
    • Search for specific keywords. For example, extremely generic words like ‘genetic’ are present in nearly every article, so they aren’t useful in search.
    • Use 2-4 keywords. One keyword is often not enough. Very long strings DO produce correct responses, but take time to generate the results.
    • Use word combinations and variations. For instance, if your search didn’t locate your expected result, add another keyword or change the tense and affixes of your words.
    • Start with filters rather than keywords. To maintain optimal performance, searches display the first 200 results. Filtering by date, author, source, or media type will refine the result set.
