Use search tools to find published articles

What makes databases different than search engines?

Research databases index, describe, and add subject terms to articles-- all of which makes it easier to find relevant material.  Look for Subject Terms or Descriptors in the database records, which you can click on or search for to narrow your search to articles primarily on your topic.

Search engines like Google Scholar don't have subject terms or descriptors added to records, but they do search full-text, so an unusual word might work to focus a search.
