Searching & Browsing

You can 🔍Search for content on our home page

Or when browsing by clicking on 🔍Search on the right.
The search will browse across all content including Titles, ISBNs, Abstracts, Keywords and Full Text:


The Advanced Search page can be used to build more complex searches and to search specific fields (eg. Title or Author). In addition users can use Boolean operators in both the Advanced and Quick Searches.

  • Search allows use of Boolean operators (AND/OR/NOT)

  • By default a search on a string of words will return results containing the individual words, eg. environmental economics is the same as environmental AND economics

  • To search for an exact phrase use ("), eg. "environmental economics" returns only results with these two words together in this order - an exact text match of the phrase

  • Use (*) as a wild card. eg. econom* will return searches containing economic, economics, economy, economist etc; colo*r will return searches containing colour as well as color

  • Basic algorithmic stemming is used to disregard some word endings, eg. a search for city will automatically include cities


Use the filtering menus on the left to refine by:

  • Book title, chapter/article, all

  • Access - OA, all accessible content
