Tracking sources

  • You will need to keep track of your literature searches in order to accurately report your searching methods.
    • Here is a sample research log template. Using this template is optional; you're welcome to use any other strategy to keep track of your searches.
    • Tips for search-tracking success:
      • Search history: Databases often track your search history for you. Look for Search History or Recent Searches or similar terms. These will show the search terms, filters, and number of results from searches you did recently. Note: this information is only available during your searching session. It will disappear after you close the tab or are idle for too long.  
      • Database names: EBSCO, EBSCOhost, and ProQuest are not specific databases. They are the companies that package and sell databases. It's confusing because these logos are very prominent on the database search pages. Look just above the search box in the database to remind yourself of the actual name of the specific database, like CINAHL Plus with Full Text or Nursing and Allied Health Database
