How do I choose which database and what search terms do I use to get the best results in the shortest time?
Choose a database that has a focus on the research topic that you have chosen. Then, use the database tools to narrow your search. Start with a broad topic and then narrow down based on specific terms. Do not open any of the articles until you have narrowed down to a manageable number.
