How to find scholarly articles for your topic

1. Identify key concepts and their synonyms in your topic/question.

2. Build your search statement using boolean operators (AND, OR , and NOT), and wildcards and truncations. Connect your concepts with "AND,"  and connect the synonyms of each concept with "OR."

3. Do the initial search and examine the results. It is possible that you can learn new ideas/terms/subjects for you topic from Subjects and Author-supplied Keywords found in some articles.

4.Go back and modify your initial search and possibly repeat the re-search process.

5. Save or export the articles you have found for your topic.
