Diversifying Your Business Course Readings: Keywords for searching

This guide provides information on how to find scholarly articles related to diversity in the field of business. References to nonbusiness databases are included.

Keywords

Generally, different databases do not use the same subject phrase (e.g., "diversity in the workplace"; "workplace diversity"). But, you can use keywords in subject, abstract, and title fields when searching different sources. You can also combine these with other words (e.g.,  age differences, diversity and workplace; ethnic differences, female entrepreneurship, group identity, income inequality, wage inequality, women executives). This list is by no means comprehensive.
