Advanced Search

Social Serices Abstracts will automatically open to the Advanced Search screen, which will allow you to combine and experiment with various sets of keywords. First, make sure that you limit to Journal Articles Only (see image below).

For example, if you were researching "health care access issues for Hispanic populations," then you would use the first group of boxes to enter keywords that represent what is at issue (health care), and in the second group of boxes enter keywords for the poplation (latino or hispanic) and in the third group enter keywords for the specific variable that you are researching (in this case it is access).
