Research Tips

  • Brainstorm possible search terms for your topic. Keep in mind that you may need to simplify long phrases by breaking them up into separate search terms or smaller phrases.  
  • Before starting your research, be sure first that there are sufficient sources on the topic, and do so early in case you need to broaden, narrow, or change your topic; and also so that you can maximize your time for researching and writing.
  • Use databases to find articles on your topic from a variety of journals and other sources.  Use journals to find a specific article or to search a topic in a specific journal.
