CHMA10 Web of Science Research Basics

Where to look for articles

Once you've identified what you need to search, you need to decide where to search for it. Research databases are an excellent place to look for scholarly information on a topic.

In this case, your instructors have specified that you are required to use the Web of Science database.

Why use research databases?

  • They are often specialized by subject area (e.g. Biochemistry)
  • They contain information not available through public resources like Google
  • They are designed with scholars and researchers in mind - that's you!
