Search the Applied Research Clearinghouse

Type in a search term below, all clearinghouse documents with your search term will be returned. You can use author name, publication title, keyword or phrase. The search engine searches the bibliographic reference and the entire abstract. This is a "crude" search engine as it will return results if the word is listed on the html page even if it is not in the same annotation.

Quick Tips and Examples 

Just type in a few words or phrases. Try to use discriminating terms that are likely to be found only in the documents you seek. The more specific you are, the better results you'll get. Here are some examples:

Search by typing words and phrases.

Input-output analysis in Wisconsin

Search will find documents containing as many of these words and phrases as possible, ranked so that the documents most relevant to your query are presented first. Don't worry about missing a document because it doesn't have one of the words in your search -- Search returns relevant results even if they don't contain all query terms.

Identify phrases with quotation marks, separate with commas.

"social accounting matrix", "Lake States"

A phrase is entered using double quotation marks, and only matches those words which appear adjacent to each other. Separate multiple phrases with a comma.

Use UPPER case to indicate exact match.

"Social Accounting Matrix"

This search engine is designed to match upper cases exactly, be careful with this because as soon as the search engine sees a capital letter it looks for exact matches. "social accounting matrix" returns 5hits, "Social Accounting Matrix" 4hits and "SOCIAL ACCOUNTING MATRIX" 0 hits!
