Search Tips for Databases
Finding specific aspects of the disorder
To find relevant journal articles, you may want to narrow your search. For specific treatments, causes, or behaviors related to a disorder, try looking at the NIMH website. If you are still having difficulty identifying specific aspects of the disorder, then put the disorder name and a relevant keyword into a Google search. Example searches:
"anorexia nervosa" and treatment
depression and causes
"borderline personality disorder" and behavior
Once you have specific search terms (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, antidepressants, etc.), then go to a database and use these terms along with the disorder. For example:
"anorexia nervosa" and "nutritional counseling"
depression and genetics
"borderline personality disorder" and “distorted self-image"
Use quotations to find an exact phrase. For example:
"post-traumatic stress disorder"
"social anxiety phobia"
