If search results are too specific, look at what is cited in the "References" sections. Referenced works tend to be more general in nature.
Similarly, if search results are too basic for you, click "Cited by" to see newer papers that referenced them. These will often be more specific.
- If you are new to a subject, you may want to investigate terminology from secondary sources. E.g., a Wikipedia article for "overweight" might suggest a Scholar search for "pediatric hyperalimentation".
There's rarely a single answer to a research question. Click "Related articles" or "Cited by" to see closely related work, or search for author's name and see what else they have written.
