Brainstorming search terms : Yewno discovery tool

how to improve your literature search by brainstorming search words

What is Yewno?

Yewno Discover is a conceptual mapping tool that allows you to explore the relationship between different concepts you are interested in, and to discover new, related concepts that you might not have known about. Conceptual relationships are mapped in Yewno based on automated semantic analysis of a knowledge base of millions of documents. This is a powerful tool for generating search terms to use in other databases, and for studying the conceptual territory around any topic. It also allows you to discover and access documents based on the concepts you select. 

You can access Yewno Discover here, or enter "Yewno" under "Databases" on the Stanford Libraries website.
