Research Tip: Find Text Button

The Find Text Button

Additional Article Sources

In addition, try searching non-science databases that relate to your research topic.  For example, if you are writing about the developing skills in children using computers, first search a broad database like Web of Science and then search a subject specific database such as the education database called ERIC.  

Articles on the same topic from different disciplines can offer different perspectives and different points of view. 

A complete list of article databases by subject area is provided.  Database search tips can help narrow your search and make your results more relevant.
