HHD 512 - Research Methods in HHD

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

How can you determine how many times a particular article/study has been cited by others? Try searching for your article in one or more of these databases for starters.
