SEARCH STRATEGY


A search strategy is necessary to conduct effective and efficient research on your topic. A search strategy contains the following steps:

          a. Develop research question
          b. Identify the key topic expressed in your research question
          c. Create a list of key words and phrases based on the topic identified
          d. Identify databases to search
          e. Search selected databases using the key words and phrases
          f. Examine results of initial search by looking at the first 20-30 results. If nothing appropriate to the topic turns up
             then try revising key words and/or search other databases
          g. Revise key words and phrases based on initial search
          h. Re-search databases
