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.

Review by:
Winifred Richmond

Dr. Yates, who is apparently a professor at Stanford University, has done psychology a service by the publication of this little book, which deals with the “applied psychologists,” the “character analysts” and the various others of their ilk who flourish in all the large cities and from time to time extend their activities to the smaller towns as well. Everyone knows of the existence of these fakirs, but few of us realize how very numerous they are and how indefatigable are their activities. Dr. Yates, attracted by a poster advertisement of free lectures on “applied psychology,” dealing with “scientific living, character analysis, success, health, happiness,” etc., went to see what it was all about, and became so interested that she was moved to make a study of the matter. As her investigation progressed, she says she became more and more amazed at the amount of this kind of psychology, at the duration of its success and the range of its influence.
