Pro Tips for Limiting Search Results
Before you click Search, consider these Search Options:
  • Publication type: Peer-Reviewed Journal
  • Age Group (of participants studied): choose based on your topic
  • Document type: Journal Articles


After you enter keywords and click Search, limit results:

  • Set a date range or sort by date 
  • Avoid book reviews by choosing a Source Type (ex. Peer-Reviewed Journals) 
  • Click References Available box


Once you click on a title to find out more:

  • Check out the "Subjects," these are the words use to describe the main topics of the article; use these in your searches
  • Look at the source, or publication title. Check Ulrich's to make sure it is refereed/peer-reviewed
  • Read the abstract. Is this relevant to your topic?
