On the results page, select the tab that contains the content type you want to surface.

The top part of the screen shows what you have exactly searched. To remove a selected filter, click on the white triangle next to it, and further click Remove.

Identify duplicate articles

Use the Duplicates drop-down menu to identify any duplicate articles that may appear in the search results.

  • Off: No duplicates will be removed from the search results, i.e. all available articles will be listed.
  • Identical: Identifies and shows the number of articles that are virtually the same. For example, articles that are republished in several publications with a different headline and source, but the text is virtually identical.
  • Similar: Identifies and shows the number of articles that talk about the same topic. It’s not looking for exact matches, but articles with similar concepts.
