Database Searching Tips

Why narrow results?

Narrowing results can be advantageous in large, multidisciplinary databases, such as ProQuest Central.

Most databases allow you to narrow your search after you retrieve results.

Consider narrowing your results by:

  • Scholarly journals (peer-reviewed)
  • Publication date
  • Document type (article)
  • Location
  • Language
