How do I find articles on critical success factors for doctoral learners?

 

To find articles on success factors for doctoral learners, you’ll want to brainstorm keywords to represent the success factors you’d like to study. For example, you might try searching for:

time management

stress management

critical thinking

persistence

motivation

 

To find articles focusing on doctoral learners, try some keywords related to students in doctoral programs. “Doctoral learner” is not a commonly-used phrase – but “doctoral student” appears regularly.

Finally, think about which databases will give you the best results. There are doctoral students in many different subject areas, and so a variety of subject databases may be useful. This is a good example of a topic that could be searched using Thoreau, our multi-database search tool.

So, try combining your search terms in a Thoreau search, like this:

Explore the results, and find an article that will work for your response.
