Find review articles for my topic so I can get some background on what research has been done so far. How do I find them? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Select the appropriate subject databases.
For example, to find a literature review on the topic of addiction in psychology, select the PsycInfo database and/or other related databases (JSTOR, SCOPUS).
In Psycinfo, type your keyword (addiction) and scroll down the screen to the box Methodology. Select Literature Review from the menu.
In other databases limit your results to Review Articles.
Note: Make sure that the box Full-text only is unchecked and the box Peer-reviewed is checked.
