Google Scholar Results

Once you have done a search in Google Scholar you can refine your results by using the tools on the left side of the screen - narrow by date (useful since Google Scholar's algortihm often prioritizes highly linked and as such often older articles), sort by date or relevance, narrow to review articles (which are especially useful overviews of primary studies; a recent review article is a great starting point), or include or exclude patetnts and citations.
