Search tips

Combine keywords and phrases:

  • enclose phrases in quotation marks, e.g. "climate change"
  • Combine keywords and phrases with AND, e.g. "climate change" AND policy
  • include alternative terms in parentheses connected with OR, e.g. (policy OR legislation OR regulation)
  • truncate terms with an asterisk to find variant endings, e.g.,  (Note: Don't truncate after just a few letters -- you will find too many unrelated terms. In addition, most databases will find plurals without the need for truncation.).

Examples:

"healthcare policies" AND comparative

"maternal health" AND (policy OR system OR service)

"climate change" AND policy AND china AND russia

etc.
