How To Narrow A Search For Scholarly Articles, Larry Sheret

Larry Sheret

This video demonstrates how to select appropriate search terms to narrow the scope of searches in the ScienceDirect database. Natural language searches are often more effective when searching the full text of an article. Once the researcher has located one or more articles, the researcher is more likely to identify any jargon or scientific terms used for the topic. A second revised search of the abstract field can be performed using the newly identified terms, often yielding more precise and relevant results. (5.4 Mb, 2min 33sec)
