Article databases and journal indexes allow you to search for articles across a number of journals at once which makes them the most efficient tools for locating journal articles. Each database will have search templates that allow you to search by keyword, title, author, etc. Generally these databases will include a help feature to explain the scope of the databases, and how the search syntax and search boxes work. Using the following search strategies will make your searches more efficient.
Every database has its own idiosyncratic search syntax so always check the help link before starting your research to ensure you are formulating your search properly.
