HONR 1101 Enduring Questions - Nash & Lee

Finding Scholarly Articles

Before conducting your search:

  • Consider how your argument might be broken down into keywords or phrases.
  • Compile a list of synonyms for those keywords.  What other terms might scholars use to talk about your topic, and how do these terms reflect the type of argument scholars are making?  (E.g., insurgency vs. rebellion)
  • Consider which intersections among your keywords will be useful for searching
  • Identify disciplines (subject areas) that are relevant to your research question.  Also consider the ways in which your question might reside outside traditional disciplines or cut across them.
See the Search Tips tab for more information on how to construct keyword searches.
