To start this assignment, complete the “Generating Search Terms”Preview the document worksheet.  The “Generating Search Terms” worksheet will help you select the major concepts in your research question.  Think of synonyms, and then develop keywords that you can use to search for your topic.  For example, if you are researching “acid rain,” write down “carbon dioxide,” “air pollution” and/or “smoke.”  Save the keywords that you develop so that you can use them as you search for sources in weeks Four and week Five.

 

Note:  You do not need to submit this worksheet.  It is for your use only.

 

After you have developed your keywords, you are ready to search for scholarly journal articles.  Review the steps for using Findit@AU for searching for scholarly journal articles by going over the Introduction to the Ashford Library.

Now you are ready to create the APA references and annotations for your sources in the Locating Scholarly Articles templatePreview the document.
