How do you use search terms in research?

Choose search terms

  1. Use a thesaurus to identify synonyms.
  2. Search for your concepts on a search engine like Google Scholar, scanning the results for alternative words and phrases.
  3. Examine relevant abstracts or articles for alternative words, phrases and subject headings (if the database uses subject headings).
