Finding Peer-Reviewed Research in Education
- Start with a broad keyword search in the databases at the left and use the limiters (usually along the left side) to narrow and focus your results.
- Read the abstracts of several articles. Note additional keywords and subject terms to re-run your search.
- Collect more than you are planning to use and evaluate and examine their references.
- Browse the Thesaurus (top bar in EBSCO screen) for appropriate subject terms.
- Watch for journals that specialize in your topic and browse those journals.
- Note the names of authors working in your area of interest and search them by name.
- Do a citation search for articles that cite your articles in Google Scholar or Web of Science.
To cross-search the databases (search more than one at a time), select "Choose databases" on the EBSCO screen next to the database name and select additional databases from the list. This will dramatically enlarge your search results.
