Getting Better Results: 

  • If you are new to the subject, it may be helpful to do some initial research to learn specific terminology. While you should avoid citing a Wikipedia entry, an article for "overweight" might suggest a Google Scholar search for "pediatric hyperalimentation."
  • If your search results are too specific, look at the references cited in an article. Referenced works tend to be more general.
  • If your results are too basic, click "Cited by" to see newer articles referenced by your results. Newer papers are often more specific.
  • Explore! There's rarely a single answer to a research question. Click "Related articles" or "Cited by" to see closely related work, or search for an author's name to see what else they have written.
