Quick Tips

  • Use quotes when your concept has more than one word (i.e. “military coup”)
  • Use synonyms and play around with keywords to create broader and narrower searches (i.e. women’s roles might be feminism) 
  • Search in English and target language (i.e. terrorism or terrorismo) 
  • Use the filters on the left side of the database to limit format (scholarly article, news, etc.), date of publication, language, and more 
  • Refer to GU’s tips on using Google Scholar
