Search Strategy

Search terms or combination of terms, Boolean operators,

Any delimiters that were used (i.e. publication year, language)

Which combinations of search terms/delimiters worked well and which did not?

How many articles did you find to be related to the research problem you are reviewing?

Why did you include the two articles for review? Cite each article and give rationale for why that article was chosen within paragraph. Put article on reference list.

Do not use Google Scholar and One Search, they are search engines, not databases.

Remember, you have already completed this section as part of Discussion Board #1

Look at the methods section of a systematic review for an example of discussing search strategy.

I’d rather have students review Eileen Harrington’s video
