TIPS 

Key in one concept and its related terms in each search box.

The asterisk * at the end of a word finds all the variant endings of that word e.g. parent* = parent, parents, parental, parenting

 

Use 'AND' to combine different concepts e.g. parent* AND perfection*

 

Don't forget to tick the box next to "Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) articles'.

LIBRARY TIP:  Source  'gold standard' articles wherever possible. | Childhood resilience in poverty | Scoop.it

Not all scholarly articles are the same.  Look for those that report on orginal research:  studies, experiments, surveys etc.  Other articles such as literature reviews, systematic reviews and meta analyses can provide useful references to original research.

sher's insight:
Often newspaper reports refer to a study or research having been conducted. You could try and locate the original paper by doing a Google search on the author's name/institution/topic keyword. For example, one recent newspaper article about children's play referred to research having been done by an urban planning academic, Professor Tony Hall, head of the Urban Research Program at Griffith University. You could google this to track down a citation to a paper that you could then search for on the library website.
