Not the range of filters listed in the left-hand margin by which you can further narrow down your search. These include Date of publication, Countries (i.e. subject headings), Languages and Document Types.
Under Document Types, look out for the category Review. These are review articles which summarise and review research done in a particular topic, and point to further literature about it. They can save you a lot of time in the initial stages of your research.
From the results list, click on Full Text from Publisher to see if it is possible to access the full text of the article. Otherwise, click on the FindIt@Bham button which will link to our library catalogue to see if we have it available through another provider.
