Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search.    This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search.  Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

marked periodicity in certain illnesses with special emphasis on illnesses which occur at Christmas and Easter. These are in turn related to derivations of the Oedipus complex.

To the psychoanalytic psychologist the speculations made by Inman, which bring the festivals of religion in psychological proximity to the causal factors of illness, will be convincing enough. To others such speculations will seem odd, unscientific and uninteresting. The psychoanalyst will place this paper with the author's Styes, Barley and Wedding Rings. His knowledge of the psychology of penitence, and his speculations concerning its connections with the customs of religion, permit him to make predictions on morbidity in an almost mathematical sense.
