You can also narrow down the results by Source Type

Academic Journals are typically published by instructors, professors and other people at universities and are research-focused (These are “Scholarly Sources” and are peer-reviewed or refereed)

Trade Publications are published by people in an industry for members of that industry

Magazines and Newspapers can be useful if you’re looking for news or current events (AKA “Popular Sources”)
