Magazine, newspaper, and journal articles focus on a specific aspect of a topic, so what you type into the search box should also be specific.
Use your research question or topic sentences as a starting point to identify keywords and concepts:
How does the visual effects of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari reveal the narrator's perspective?
|Type AND between each concept||dr caligari AND visual|
|Use "quotation marks" around phrases||"set design" AND dr caligari|
|Use an asterisk (*) to get words with multiple endings
(light* will find articles with light, lights, lighting, lighted, and lightness)
|dr caligari AND light*|
|Use related terms and synonyms||dr caligari AND (light* OR shadow* OR visual OR scenery OR angles)|
In your list of results, use FILTERS/LIMITERS:
If your topic is really specific and you're not getting enough results, you can force the database to look for your words in the complete text of the articles (otherwise the database defaults to basically just looking for your search terms in the title, abstract, and subject headings):
