Search Tips!
  • Choose keywords to get yourself started and then think about synonyms or related terms to expand your searches (see examples in box below)
  • Select Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals if you want to limit your search to those publications



  • If your results are too narrow, try truncating your terms. By adding an asterisk (*) after the first few letters of a term, you will be able to search the different variations of that term. E.g. searching "immigra*" will allow you to search for "immigrant," "immigrants," "immigrate," and "immigration"
  • If your results are too broad, try adding more search boxes to combine additional keywords/concepts.
