Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. You can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.
Use the advanced search box to search with more specific requirements to find articles with keywords, author, publication title and date range.
|AND search both/all words||wage equality||Google automatically defaults to an AND search so results will include both words/terms|
|"exact phrases" in quotation marks||"home based care"||Results will all include the exact phrase|
|OR find either word/s||gender OR women||Must capitalise OR|
|intitle:words in the title||intitle:"cats love catnip"||No space between intitle: and keywords|
|author:name||author:"B Wayne"||In publications author names are often shortened to initial and surname.|
