If you are searching for a specific topic and too many terms are stacked in the Keyword searching fields, the results will usually return as none or very, very few--this type of method is too narrow.

Using your terms accurately will aid you in getting good results.  In order to streamline the search to your specific topic, type in general term in the first field (using a Keyword search) and then select "AND", and then type in a more specific term (related to your first term) in the next field.

The results should be more focused to your specific research goals. Upload the document below for an overview of Basic Research Strategy.
