Health, Illness and Society (CSOCL-2406)

Selecting Articles

Just like in Google, searching in the databases can produce hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of results! 

When you type in your keywords and find articles, be selective.

Here are a few things to notice:

  • What is the date of the article?
  • What is the title of the journal?  Is this an academic journal or a magazine or newspaper article?
  • Does the article have references?

In addition, by reading the abstract, you can see how relevant the article is to your topic.
