Welcome to Search Techniques for the Economics of Global Poverty

Search Smart–use a "Find more like it" search technique by using a good book/article & looking it up to see what tags or subject terms have been assigned to it. This gives you good new, authoritative words & ideas to think about using in a new search, while staying on target with the original 'big concept.'

Try the words as 'subject' searches–it can show you other themes on the same word, giving you more ideas for your papers. Look for big concept words on your syllabus, from words used in class, or from a known, good item. "Finding more like it"is a technique that works for books, authors, articles, journal titles.
