Keyword Search Tips

Keyword searching (generally) works best for finding articles in Engineering Village. If you get too many results, try limiting to a controlled vocabulary term - there is a facet on the left side of the screen. 

  • connect synonyms with the word or to get more results

 (co-digestion  or codigestion)

  • combine keywords or phrases with the word and to help limit and focus your results:

 leachate and recirculation

  • put quotes around phrases "methane yield"
  • truncate terms to get all possible endings

produc*  (finds produce, produces, product, production, etc.)

Put it all together:

(co-digestion or codigestion) and produc* and biogas and "methane yield"
