Where Do I Start?

Develop a Search Strategy:

  • Write your topic of interest as a question.
  • Think of as many keywords or concepts (not whole sentences) as you can to describe your topic. Add more words, subject headings, and MESH (medical subject headings) terms that you find as you search.
  • Combine the words or concepts for your online searching using Boolean Logic (AND, OR, NOT) to get more relevant sources.

  • Think about what you already know about your topic. What more do you want to know?

  • Take time to explore what kind of information is available.  See what others have published in books or periodical articles.

  • Be open to new ideas:  Modify your topic as you discover more information.

Remember:

  • Research is a process. 

  • It takes time to search and to think about what you find and how it fits with your topic.
