Narrow or Broaden

Once you have a list of keywords and a few synonyms, it's time to search!

As you go along, you may find that you are either getting too many or too few search results. If this happens, don't worry! It's all part of the process.

The rule of thumb is:

If you are getting too many results, add an AND and another keyword. For example, "psychology AND immigration."

If you are getting too few results, try adding an OR and a synonym. For example, "immigration AND (children OR youth)."
