Search Strategy for the Case Study Assignment


Select your field from the Find Resources in Your Field box above.

Click on a journal article database.

Enter your search terms.

Consider these limiters:

  • Academic Journals
  • Peer-Reviewed Journals
  • Publication Date

Select an article that is appropriate for your Case Study project. It should contain some of the elements discussed in the Scholarly Materials Tutorial (left), and be long enough to summarize.

Email a number of articles to yourself. Make sure the emails include (or link to) the full text of the articles and the automatically generated MLA Style citations.  

If you do not find enough articles in your field, or your field is not listed in the Find Resources in Your Field box, click on the OneSearch tab on this course guide, and repeat this proces.
