    Databases

     
  2. Select Web of Science: Core Collection from the list of popular databases or select the link at the bottom of the page.
    • You will be prompted to sign-in with your UTORid and password in order to access the database when you are off-campus.
       
  3. Enter the search terms you identified earlier. 
    • ​​Note that the default search field is 'all fields'. I recommend changing it to 'Topic' when starting your research. The search field can be changed using the drop-down menu.
    • You can also add additional terms and fields if needed and select the appropriate boolean operator (AND, OR, NOT) to connect them.
