Search tips:

  • Phrase Searching: "Climate Change" (use quotes whenever you search a phrase for better results)

  • "Water Policy" Israel (add in the country or region as a search term for more targeted results)

  • Econom* Recycling (truncate words with the * to include any ending - this would get you economY and economIC) 

  • Ecotourism (the more specific you can be with your terms the better!) 

  • "Keystone Pipeline" (Proper nouns in quotes will always be more specific search terms)
