Strategies for the Literature Review

Consider your topic and search across relevant EBSCO databases


  • Peer-Reviewed
  • Publication date (with the potential exception of history)
  • Combine synonyms with OR


Search using terms that reflect the assignment criteria

Be willing to try out different fields (like Title or Abstract) to see which strategies produce the best results.
