      Search Tips

      When researching different ethnic groups it is crucial that you take the time to figure out all of the different ways that your demographic can be referred to. For example:

      • Korean Americans can be referred to as Corean Americans
      • Black Caribbean Americans can be referred to as Afro-Cuban Americans
      • Mexican Americans can be referred to as Chicano or Chicana
      • Latin Americans can be referred to as Hispanic American or Latino American

      Also be aware that researchers may only refer to the larger demographic group in the abstract of an article but may have sections devoted to your narrow demographic group in the article itself. To capture those articles try using the following search strategy:

      • Hispanic American (limited to the abstract field) AND Mexican American (limited to the full text field)
      • Asian American (limited to the abstract field) AND (Korean American OR Corean American) (limited to the full text field)
