The most common and helpful search filters in a database are the:
- full text limit (only returns articles you can read the full text of),
- scholarly/peer reviewed limit (only returns scholarly/peer reviewed articles),
- publication date limit (to exclude articles older than a certain point, or published within a certain time period).
Looking at the search limits in a particular database can also give you clues about the content of the database. E.g. if you don't see a scholarly/peer reviewed limit, it probably means that the database you are searching is already ONLY scholarly/peer reviewed.
