Additional tips

  • Don’t limit yourself to one discipline—check databases in several related areas
  • Consider searching multiple databases at once to see which sources might be the most useful
  • Use Google to locate relevant government sites for reports and statistical data by limiting your search to  or
  • Dissertations can provide good literature reviews as well as focused data
  • If you find a useful source, check Google Scholar for its “cited by” links

Finding More Articles

Once you locate a useful article, you may want to look for articles that have cited that work after it was published.  This may yield additional useful resources for your own research.  Google Scholar and Web of Science are excellent sources for identifying "cited by" references.
