Keywords and Search Terms

Once you've decided on your topic, be sure to pick out the keywords - the big ideas or main concepts - in your research question. You can make your search more effective by using the following to separate your keywords (terms):

  • AND - find all  the terms (ex. sampling AND instruments)
  • OR - find any of the terms (ex. sampling OR instruments)
  • NOT - exclude a certain term (ex. sampling NOT instruments)

Start below with these Research Starters to find keywords and concepts
