Help with refining your search results
The results screen has a number of options for refining your search results.
If you have used the simple, intermediate or advanced search you can add or remove additional terms and run your search again without having to leave the results page.
if you have come to the results page via the browse option the breadcrumbing at the top of the screen shows where you are in the topic tree.
The refine search options are filters that reduce your results by the following areas;
Full text only (Please note not all records have links to full text. Find out more about obtaining full text)
Content type - e.g legislation, guidance, research View examples and definitions of content types used by Social Care Online
Format - e.g book, article, website View examples and definitions of format types
A combination of content type and/or format can also be used to refine search results.
Note: Since most of the data (articles up to 2005) in the database has been transferred across from Social Care Online's predecessor much of it has not yet been indexed to this level.
