    • Expand the Search by Subject or Topic dropdown menu, which can be found just above the main Academic Search field.

    • Before you enter your keywords and search, it is recommended to "pre-filter" your search results. To do this, expand the Advanced Options dropdown menu and then use the dropdown under Build Your Own Segment Search. Consider how inserting your keywords into fields like “Headline” and “Lead” can focus your results on your topic. The Index Terms filter can also be used to get results on a particular subject (and can also be used to focus on companies or people). The Date and Source Type filters may also be used. Using even 1-2 of these filters should help narrow your search results by removing less-relevant results.
