  22. 22. Strategies for Research on JSTOR To help understand the context for your topic, search for your keywords, and: • Note how many results you get – are there enough? • Look in abstracts for related keywords you can use as additional search terms. • Note the publication date range of relevant results – is it important for your topic that the research is recent?
  23. 23. Strategies for Research on JSTOR To find influential authors and related research on your topic: • Choose a relevant article and look at the cited works to find related research. • Search for the title of an article and look for articles that cite that work. • To find mulitple perspectives, search for articles that include “Comment on <article title>” or “Response to <article title>”.
  24. 24. Strategies for Research on JSTOR Reflect on the results you find. If you’re not finding enough relevant content: • Try searching for alternate terms, and alternate spellings. • Your topic may be too recent – the published research may not yet be available on JSTOR. • Your topic may be in a discipline not as deeply covered by JSTOR (hard sciences, medicine, for example).
