SC 130-H1 Climate Science: Finding Articles

Search Tips

Use the word "AND" to combine your keywords to make your search more specific, e.g. "substance abuse" AND "domestic violence."

Use synonyms and alternative or related terms - broader or narrower - to expand your relevant results, e.g. "teenagers" | "adolescents" | "youth"

Use truncation "*" to search for words with common roots without entering them individually, e.g. searching for teen* retrieves "teen," "teens", "teenaged", "teenagers." Use the "star" symbol (hit "shift" key + 8) to add truncation to your search term.

You can limit search results in many databases to academic/peer-reviewed journals, by publication date, or full-text only.
