Search Tips

Using limiters narrows your search results:

  • ALWAYS click the Full text box
  • If you need a journal article, click Peer-reviewed (some databases use Scholarly  or Academic)

Use the Advanced search to create more complex searches with multiple concepts:

  • Use one or two words NOT full sentences
  • put multiword phrases in quotation marks ( "minimum wage")
  • "And" narrows the search to require that both concepts are present in each result:  communication AND gender
