This 2-page handout describes some search techniques and how to connect to full text articles after doing a database search.
Build more effective searches by learning about "Boolean operators" when connecting your search terms.
At Scholar home page, under Settings
Search these indexes for journal, magazine or newspapers articles, book reviews, conference proceedings, dissertations, etc.
Note: Not everything in a journal is peer reviewed; letters to the editor, book reviews, news items, and other short works without listed references are typically not peer reviewed the way more substantive articles are.
Check references in relevant articles you find.
Check "Times CIted" links, if available, in databases such as PsycINFO and Sociological Abstracts to identify some newer articles citing the article in the database record. This may lead to related relevant articles.
Use Web of Science to follow citations from published articles to identify older and newer related articles across many disciplinary fields in the sciences, social sciences, and arts & humanities.
