Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

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.

result of immature cognitive mechanisms rather than psychological factors. Interviews with single adolescent girls who had undergone an elective abortion were conducted. In most cases, the knowledge of birth control could not be converted into practice, and pregnancy was an unintended consequence of sexual activity. Lasting sexual intimacy was not experienced, nor did the girls have much curiosity about their bodies. Thinking was seen to be figurative; that is, essentially set into motion by sensory input, rather than operative, which would involve the anticipation necessary for the use of birth control methods other than the IUD.
