Search Tips for OneSearch

To focus your searches using OneSearch try the following commands:

     

 

Another powerful technique is to search for your topic (keywords) in the title of articles.  To do this change the dropdown menu in the AdvancedSearch from “Select a Field” to “TI Title” … and remember to search for both the common name(s) and the scientific name of your chosen mammal.

 

 

                   

    

For the following search example the phrase “climate change” must appear in the title of the article and the words ice and either Antarctic or Antarctica must also appear (though not necessarily in the title).

Be sure to limit the results to “Peer Reviewed Journals
