Keywords and Search Terms in Psychology

Searching in the library's resources depends on the keywords - or search terms - you use. Instead of searching for a whole question or sentence, break your topic into keywords. Mix and match different combinations of keywords to get different results when searching. Also, think of similar or related terms you can search for.

For example:

Research question: How does childhood abuse impact adult mental health?

Possible keyword combinations:

  • child abuse AND mental health
  • childhood abuse AND adult depression
  • anxiety AND childhood neglect

Mix and match different keywords to find different articles.
