Reviewing your search

Reviewing your search

If you have too many references:
  • browse results and select references of interest
  • narrow your search by adding key terms or focusing on a specific aspect of a subject
  • limit your search, perhaps by year or language
  • specify that one or more of your key terms must be in the title of the article
If you have too few references:
  • check your search - have you forgotten any alternative words, spellings and so on?
  • broaden your search by omitting one of your key terms
  • search more years or further back in the literature
  • search other database(s)
  • look at cited references and/or related references
