Tips for Database Searching

1. Most databases allow you to limit your search by criteria such as date, language and publication type (e.g. peer reviewed journals)

2. Note how your search results are sorted. Many databases sort by date, with the most recently published articles appearing first

3. Click on any article citation for additional details, including the Abstract and Subject Terms

4. If the full article is not available, use uc-ellinks

5. If you are not satisfied with your results, try a different combination of search terms, or select another database to search
