Database limits and filters
Database limits and filters may be applied to reduce your search results if you have too many. Some useful limits include 'English Language' or date. Note the following about using limits:
Using a limit only applies to the database you are currently searching. If you have selected more than one, only the results from the filtered database will display.
If the database is bibliographic (abstract) only – it won’t find any full-text. Using a full text limiter will therefore yield 0 results.
If you limit your results, there is always the potential that you could miss some important/useful research.
You should critically evaluate all resources found to determine their appropriateness for your assignment. The video below explains more.
