Research Strategy

It is important to have a strategy when you begin your search for information.  Start with the general and close in later on the specific.  This will help you to understand what you are reading.

  1. Read about your topic in books, electronic medical texts, specialized encyclopedias and reliable web sites to get background information. (Find great resources for this under the Background Reading tabs on this page).
  2. Search the scientific literature using a databse such as PubMed.  Look for Review Articles.  These will summarize the research for you and help you get in-depth background.
