Change your current search in the search menu above the results. To empty the search box, click 'Clear'. Note: this does not remove the filters you set in your current search. For a new search, click on the button 'New Search' in the upper left corner.
Relevance is the default sort order. Click on the arrow to change the sort order of your results. Options include Date Newest. Date Oldest, Author, and Source.
Use the 'Limit To' feature to apply limits to refine (filter) your results. Do NOT check 'Linked Full Text' -- use the TiUfinder instead (see 4). Other available limits are Publication Date, Source Types, Subject, Publication, etc.
Most records don't have full text available from EconLit, and you may only have a link to view the publication details, such as descriptors, keywords and abstract. In such cases the TiUfinder icon will appear, allowing you to check if the full text is available through the TiU library.
