Steps to finding
primary research articles
- Define your search topic
Identify keywords and synonymous terms
- Find research articles the separation of fentanyl using hplc
Use the truncation symbol (*) to search for various
- fentanyl 84-72-2 (Chemical Abstracts registry number - found
in chemical catalogs and online)
- hplc, high performance liquid chromatography
Combine concepts using Boolean operators.
- See the article database help screens for the truncation
- chromatog*, chromatograph*, chromatograph*
- OR => combines similar terms together into
one set of results
- (hplc or high performance liquid chromatography)
- (fentanyl or 84-72-2)
- AND => combines different concepts together
into one set
- hplc and fentanyl
- (hplc or high performance liquid chromatography ) and (fentanyl
combining "or" statements with "and" statements
use parentheses around the "or" statements
