Finding Articles

You can search for your topic using Summon. Remember to limit your search under Content Type to Scholarly & Peer Review.

You can also search one of these specialized databases to find scholarly (peer reviewed) articles. They offer more functionality than Summon.

Tips for Searching

  • Use quotation marks to search for a phrase (e.g. "douglas fir")
  • Use OR to expand a search (e.g. "douglas fir" OR "pseudotsuga menziesii")
  • Use AND to narrow a search (e.g. "douglas fir" AND properties)
  • Use truncation to search variations of a word (e.g. propert* to search property or properties)
  • Use nesting to combine different search (e.g. ("douglas fir" OR "pseudotsuga menziesii") AND properties)
