Database Searching

Below are suggested databases and search tips for your research.

  • Use AND to narrow your results by searching for two keywords simultaneously. 
    Example: immigration AND border control
  • Use OR to broaden your results by searching for either two or more keywords
    Enclose terms separated by OR in parentheses
    Example: (dog OR canine)
  • Use quotation marks ("") to search for terms as a phrase
    Example: "genetically modified food"
  • Use asterisks to retrieve additional forms of a word
    Example: parent* retrieves parent, parents, parenting, parenthood, etc.
  • Limit your results to academic or scholarly sources if you need academic sources.

Putting it all together

Use all the above search tip sto refine your search. 
Example: juvenile* AND ("death penalty" OR "capital punishment")
