Scholarly Business Research: Databases

Strategy for Searching Databases

Before searching University Libraries subscription based databases, you should prepare your search strategy by taking the following steps: 

  • Define topic
  • Brainstorm terms in order to identify keywords to use
    • Words used in the search are generally in the title, abstract, source, and subject fields of a record.
  • Be aware of Boolean operators, which you need to use in order to search our subscription-based databases
    • Or – for similar terms
    • And – to join different ideas

       For example:

tqm or total quality management

management and organizational culture

Other Databases

These interdisciplinary databases provide articles not only from business related journals, but from journals in other disciplines that can be useful for scholarly business research.  For example, a database in psychology can help when doing research in organizational behavior.
