How do I find articles?

Finding the right article starts with using the right database. There are quite a few databases that can help you, but in order to choose the right one, you have to narrow down your topic/focus. Since databases are divided in broad areas, think about one or two that best fits your topic.

See the examples below:


Mental illness: depression, substance abuse, suicide, anxiety

  • Potential keywords: mental health, mental illness, substance abuse, drug abuse, psychoses, rehabilitation, psychology
