There were actually more articles in ProQuest Research Library on this topic. This database covers multiple topics and is scholalry, just like EBSCO Academic Search Complete so they are both good to check.

Once you've done a search you can save time by using options on the right side of the screen (see clocks, below). Each of the options shows several items to limit; click More Options... to view all your options. Using any of the options will potentially help you focus and save time, but these are generally your best bets:

  • Full Text
    Select Full text included to limit to articles with full text online.
  • Source Type
    You can easily narrow down to academic or scholarly resources if your instructor requires it by selecting Scholarly Journals. 
  • Document Type
    This is an easy way to limit your search to things like audio/video, biographies, case studies, commentary, editorials, government documents, interviews, speeches, statistics, transcripts, and more.
  • Subject
    Save a lot of time by selecting a subject. This will eliminate articles that just mention your topic, but are not mainly about your topic.
