Search Strategies

Start with a keyword search (see the tips sheet on the Articles page)

  • Try a broad search, and use the database facet feature to narrow your results
  • Then "mine" the data from a relevant article to adjust your search, and/or add search terms

Follow up with a specialized search

  • subject search - limit your keywords to just the subject field. Or select subject terms from a list.
  • cited reference search - once you find a relevant article, look for newer articles that cite it.  ONLY available in the Web of Science Core Collection.
  • listed references - don't forget to check the references at the end of the article to identify articles that the authors consulted.

Choose your Database
