Accessing Content

If your institution has purchased book content you should have access within your university or off campus via remote access via your institutional Log in. If the content does not have a green padlock it means your university has not bought the chapter or article. We do not sell books or chapters to individuals so please recommend the purchase to your library. Most of our books are made available as reasonably priced eBooks on Google Play. We do not offer trials to individuals.

The Advanced Search page can be used to build more complex searches and to search specific fields (eg. Title or Author). In addition users can use Boolean operators in both the Advanced and Quick Searches.

  • Search allows use of Boolean operators (AND/OR/NOT)

  • By default a search on a string of words will return results containing the individual words, eg. environmental economics is the same as environmental AND economics

  • To search for an exact phrase use ("), eg. "environmental economics" returns only results with these two words together in this order - an exact text match of the phrase

  • Use (*) as a wild card. eg. econom* will return searches containing economic, economics, economy, economist etc; colo*r will return searches containing colour as well as color

  • Basic algorithmic stemming is used to disregard some word endings, eg. a search for city will automatically include cities
