Finding articles

Once you have chosen a database, brainstorm some search terms and enter them in the search boxes. Some tips:

  • Combine concepts using AND (women AND income)
  • Combine synonyms or similar concepts using OR (women OR female)
  • Use * to truncate (canad* will find canada, canadian, etc.)
  • use quotation marks to search for a phrase ("unpaid work"; "higher education")
  • You don't have to use all your keywords in the first search. You can always add more keywords later. More search strategies.
