How do I search in JSTOR? (link)

The opening Advanced Search page presents 4 options for searching through the full text of all articles. You can change one or more these options to search through authors' names, words in article titles, words in article abstracts, or words in captions. To search for forms of a word, use an asterisk (*) to substitute for missing letters.
Example: modern* finds modern, modernism, moderns, modernistic, etc.
To find articles containing two or more words, connect the search terms with AND.
Example: terror* AND nationalis*
To search for a multi-word phrase, enclose search terms in quotation marks.
Example: "vernacular architecture"

How are the results from a KnoWLedgebase search sorted? (link)

Your search phrase is compared to a list of trivial words, which are dropped.

The remaining words are compared to a list of key words, defined within the KB system.  They are also compared to the list of non-trivial words for each question in the KB database.

A score is calculated using the following equation:

score = 70% * (# matched key words from your search) / (total # key words for that KB question) + 30% * (# matched question words from your search) / (# non-trivial question words in that KB entry)

The matching KB entries are then displayed, sorted in the following order:

  1. score, descending
  2. # matched key words, descending
  3. # matched question words, descending
