  6. 6. Click on these boxes in order to search in them. Then click here.
  7. 7. Your turn . . . • Try refining the search using the sidebar on your results page – – – – What happens if you limit the publication date to just 2013? What articles are available if you limit the age to 6-12 year olds? What if you limit the gender to just male or female? Change the first author so it can be any researcher – did it bring more useful articles? – What happens if we search for the keywords in the body of the articles instead of the subject search? How many more articles do you see? • You can also truncate your keywords to give you more results – very useful your result numbers are low – In EBSCOhost, the truncation symbol is *. – Try typing diabet* and child* - how does this alter your results. • By using * you are searching for all possible spellings, not just the related words option we selected in our first search. This means the database will search for words like child, childhood, children and diabetes and diabetic
