THANK YOU!! This is a huge help, as I had the same request about a year ago, with the same initial results.

NLM, would you consider adding "just culture" to the phrase index?

Subject: Search Tip

I want to pass along to the list a search tip that NLM gave me.  Recently,
one of our administrators asked me to search the medical literature for
articles on "just culture", which is a organizational management
philosophy.  I tried everything I could think of, but "just" is a stop word
in PubMed and even enclosing it in quotes won't work.

I called the customer help line at NLM and they gave a work-around.  They
suggested I use the "Advanced Search" interface of Google, put "just
culture" in the "exact wording" box, and "" under "search
within a site or domain".  It worked like a charm.

Thanks to Margaret McGhee at NLM.
