Document your searches to:

  • Keep track of your search terms so you don't duplicate
  • Keep track of the databases you've searched
  • Reuse successful search terms in multiple databases
  • Describe your search methods in your paper (if needed)
  • Provide evidence of a thorough search

Write down what database you searched, the keywords or subject headings used, the date, number of results, and comments/notes to yourself for improving future searches.
