Begin your search with the following recommended databases to look for articles from peer-reviewed and scholarly journals on your topic.
No one database has everything. Search multiple databases from the list below to find adequate articles on your topic. To find more databases from the library click Subjects A-Z on the library website and choose the subject(s) most relevant to your topic
Searching for information relies heavily on the use of keywords. Being able to translate your topic into meaningful keywords is the difference between quickly finding information, or having a long and frustrating search for relevant articles. Here are some ways to generate keywords:
Example search: How is teenage pregnancy affected by economic status?
1. AND: Use 'and' between different words to focus your search
2. OR: Use 'or' between synonyms to expand your search
3. Wildcard*: Use a wildcard * to expand your search
4. Limits: Use limits to focus your search
