Tips for Searching Online Databases

Search more than one database to improve your chances.

When you are searching with multiple keywords or search terms:

  • "and" means both terms must show up in your results = fewer results
  • "or" means either term must show up in your results = more results
  • "not" means that therm must not show up in your results = fewer results

Consider limiting your search by:

  • full-text only
  • date
  • peer reviewed or scholarly publications

Check for a Cited References link to find related articles.

Within many databases and Google Scholar there is a shortcut to get a properly formatted citation for an article.
