Link concepts with the word AND. For example, a good way to find articles about the relationshop between video games and the characteristics of the people who play them would be to search video games AND personality.
If there are different ways to say the same thing, consider using the linking word OR. For example, video games OR computer games.
Adding an asterisk at the end of a word will get alternative word endings. A search on child* will find the word child, but will also find childhood and children. Very handy!
Peer-reviewed Search Option
Remember to click the box that says "peer-reviewed" (located directly under the search boxes). This will make sure you get the kind of research that you probably need for your assignment.
