It is possible to use the command intitle: in a standard Google Scholar search blank to limit certain words to the title while allowing other words to appear anywhere in the article. Be sure that the term or phrase (which should be typed in quotes) is entered immediately to the right of the colon in intitle:
Example 1 - a search for an article that contains the phrase "mass media" in the title and also contains the word "China" somewhere else in the article:
Example 2 - a search for an article that contains both the word "internet" and the word "censorship" in the title, and also contains the phrase "Middle East" somewhere in the article:
Google Scholar ranks your results in part based on the number of times an article has been cited. Since it takes a while for even the best research articles to accumulate a large number of citations this means that Google Scholar will tend to display older research.
To adjust your results so that you can view results from a particular year - or so you can view the most recent research - use one of the date options found on the left-hand side of the page.
However, if you are off campus Google Scholar will not automatically supply the "Find it! @ UNI" unless you either ...

2. Click on the settings wheel
3. Click on the Library links option
4. Type Iowa into the blank and click on the search button
5. Check the option "University of Northern Iowa - Find it! @ UNI"
