Databases for researching the literature in HHD

Where to start your research?  You might start with Web of Science as it's a very large, interdisciplinary database.  However, you may need to search your topic across several databases depending on the interdisciplinary nature of your topic and depending on how extensive of a literature review you're conducting.  Most research questions are also appropriate for exploring in the PSYCINFO behavioral sciences database.

Finding Citation Counts
