In some databases, articles are tagged with subject headings that can be used to search for all articles on a particular subject. You can either note subject headings on articles you find, or you can locate subject headings by searching an index that the database provides. In SocIndex, go to the "Subject Headings" link in the top right of the page.
In the second search box, enter a broad term that you're interested in. Choose "Relevancy Ranked" from the search options, then click the Browse button.
The database will list potentially relevant topics. If you don't find what you're looking for, try another keyword. Click the checkbox next to the topic you want to search for, then add the term to your search with the "Add" button.
The database will create your search. You can add more topics to your search by choosing other subject headings and using the "OR" and "AND" drop down functions.
When you click search, your results will include all articles tagged with the subject heading you picked. Use the facets in left hand column to limit your search by date, publication type, or to scholarly journals only.
