5. Click the search button to run the search
Tip: Because "conceptual framework" is a narrow and specific search term, be sure to only use 1-2 other broad terms in the other search boxes. If you have a complex topic and add all of those terms you will probably get zero results. It is best to start very broadly.
Leave the Select a Field box as is for these search terms.
Your completed search should look like this:
The results in the center of the screen will be a list of articles with the search terms bolded.
Tip: In many databases, conceptual framework is a Subject Term. You can refine your search by changing the 'select a field (optional) dropdown choice to SU Subject. Learn about subject terms and index searching
Tip: Replace 'conceptual framework' with theoretical framework for different results.
