Related Research Guides

There are a few additional guides that might be useful for your research. Be sure to consult the following guides - you might note that there is some overlap between the resources on these guides and your course guide. This will give you confidence that you're searching all the appropriate sources for your topics.

Explore a Topic!

  1. Pick a topic of interest to explore (start broad) - Note your topic
  2. Select a database (CINAHL, Nursing & Allied Health, PubMed) and search for articles on your topic - Note the search terms you used
  3. Skim through your search results - Note a few aspects of the topic that are covered in the results list
  4. Identify an article that looks promising (read the abstract!) - Note the citation (author, title, journal, date of publication, etc.)  and why you think the article looks promising

Record your notes and be prepared to share your findings with the class. Who knows, you may end up using an article you found today in your research proposal!
