The reason for this advantage should become clearer in Chap. 9. In an age where it is so simple to search online, we tend to ignore other important ways to find articles we should read. When searching for keywords in a database, we can run into the Goldilocks Principle in which our list of hits is either too large or too small but rarely just right (Chapin, 2004). Lists that are too large contain many articles that need to be sifted through that are not relevant to our needs. Those lists that are too small can lead us to overlook key articles.
