Articles: Targeted Resources and Search Tips

 

The most efficient way to find journal and magazine articles on a topic, is to use a subject database: 

Bush Library provides several databases which contain scholarly (peer reviewed) journals, (popular) magazines, and professional and trade publications. Use the database limiting options to restrict your results to the type most appropriate for your research needs. Most researchers need to search more than one database in order to do a comprehensive search.

Database Search tips:

  • Use an asterisk at the end of words in order to capture all alternate endings (i.e. manag* = manage, managed, management...)
  • Use quotation marks around words when you want results with that exact phrase (i.e. "multinational corporations" will be a more specific search than those words searched without quotes)
  • ​​Within your search results list, look at the "Subject" terms applied to the articles. These may give you other terms to use instead of, or in combination with, your original search terms.
