Strategies for Searching

  • Put phrases in quotes.
  • Use OR to combine synonyms:
  • Use AND to combine main ideas of your topic/question.
  • Truncate (with *) to get all variations of a search term
  • Change important search terms to Subjects for narrower and more relevant results
  • Start with the Title and the Abstract (or summary) of the article.
  • Then scan the Subject Headings to learn what the article’s focus areas are.
  • Notice if the type of article matches what you need; don’t get fooled by a book review or editorial.
  • See if you have access to the full-text of your chosen article, possibly in another database
