Searching Academic Search Premier: Step by Step Instructions
Academic Search Premier is a multidisciplinary database which contains scholarly articles, magazines and newspapers.
Generally, typing sentences or questions in a search box does not provide good results. Instead, use the terms or keywords that describe concepts of your topic to construct search statements.
Narrowing Your Search
From the Academic Search Premier home page, scroll down to "Limit your results" In this box, you can see many options for narrowing your search.
- If you know you need to find only Academic (Scholarly, Peer Reviewed) Journal articles, check the box to limit to only those kinds of sources.
- You can limit by date if you want only the most recent material.
- If you would like help with any of the options for limiting your search results, ask a librarian!
