Article Databases

Best practices for searching databases


Organize your research topic. Use the required elements for each type of paper (industry or product) found in your syllabus.

Determine where you are most likely to find these required elements. Below are just a few examples.

  • research = scholarly articles from Web of Science or CINAHL
  • industry information = IBISWorld or Business Source Premier
  • product information = Trade journals and websites 

Keep your search simple, use one or two terms that define you major concepts. 

Always copy your citation information for articles that you want to use or just think you might want to use. Databases let you import or email that information.
