Research tips

Searching Tips: To help locate primary research on review articles try the following techniques:

  • To narrow results to review studies
    • Add the terms "systematic review" OR "meta analysis" in an all-text search box.
  • To narrow results to primary research
    • Use Boolean Operator "NOT" and add the search terms "systematic review" OR "meta analysis" in an all-text search box.

While this may help narrow results to better achieve a more relevant pool of articles, it is not foolproof. Students will need to examine each article to verify it meets the research need.
