OneSearch "Advanced Search"

How to find research articles on your topic with OneSearch “Advanced Search.”

  1. Head to the Rod Library website –     (or just google – UNI Library)
  2. Click on the “Advanced Search” option under the OneSearch search blank.
  3. Type in your topic and search.  
  4. After you get (too many) results you can focus on recent articles as follows:

    On the right-hand column of the results page try the following:
    • Check the option labeled "Peer-reviewed Journals" to limit your search to quality research.
    • Adjust the “Publication Date” bar to a recent date range e.g. 2020 to 2022 for Journal Article Assignments
      or 2010 to 2022 for Mini Research Paper Assignment.

Make sure your article is a RESEARCH article.

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


Rough technique for limiting OneSearch to research: Subject = Research

While the following technique is rather imperfect it is possible to nudge OneSearch results in the direction of empirical studies (research) by including a Subject search for Research in one of the search blanks.


Using the subject heading "Research" in the last search blank to limit your OneSearch search results to empirical studies (research articles)
