Search Strategies

Keywords are:

  • A good way to start a search.
  • The important concepts in your own words.
  • Found anywhere in the article (title, author, subject terms, etc.)

Limit to Peer-Reviewed or Scholarly articles:

  • Journal articles go through a peer-review process. Being peer-reviewed is a sign that a paper's author(s) have done a certain level of due diligence in their work and their research is complete, manages conflicts-of-interest, and is fair and objective.

Narrow the Date Range:

  • When looking for Current Research or Evidence-Based Practices limit your date range to the last 3-5 years.

Search for Articles

You can search article databases for news and research about your industry, company, or market research.  Databases are owned by a few different companies, and the library pays for access to make relevant sources available for your research. The sources in the databases are rarely available for free on the open web.
