Narrow your Search

Have you ever tried to find an article or topic only to get thousands of irrelevant hits? Whenever you are using a search phrase (containing more than one word, e.g. cognitive psychology, or third world poverty), try putting quotations around it like this:
"cognitive psychology"
"third world poverty"

This will force the search engine or research database to only return results with those exact words together and in the order you placed them.
