Literature Search Strategies
When you search for resources:
Think about your core concepts. Keep search terms simple, and pay attention to keywords and other terms you see referenced in relevant articles. You can use those terms if you need to revise your search.
Use the Evidence Pyramid to guide your search. Look for the highest level of evidence you can find. Keep in mind that many epidemiologic/ public health studies may be more in the observational categories: cohort, case-control, case series. Your goal is to find the highest level of evidence that is relevant for your information need.
