Gale PowerSearch contains over 100 MILLION articles(!), covering a wide array of scholarly journals, magazines, and news  publications.

The PowerSearch tool takes the titles, subjects, and approximately the first 100 words from a subset of your top results and feeds them into an algorithm.

Keywords shown in the graphics are those found most often in the text with your search term. The Topic Search graphically displays terms by relevancy. The more relevant the term, the larger the block.
