Academic language (and therefore an academic database) isn't always what we might expect it to be. Use the method modeled in the worksheet below to develop alternate keywords for each of the ones you have pulled out of your own research topic. They can be synonyms, broader terms, or more narrow terms.

For example: video games might generate a list like:

  • computer games
  • gaming
  • xbox
  • first person shooter
  • Fortnight
