Play around with keywords when searching for scholarly articles in these databases. Use synonyms and conduct multilingual searches when necessary. You can also add and take away search terms in order to create broader and more narrow searches, as well as keywords that specify time period and geographic location. Once you've conducted a search, it's good practice to use the filters on the left side of the database to limit format (scholarly article, news, etc), date of publication, and more.
