Chem Concepts - Research Project: Database Resources

Get Familiar With Your Topic

Use these databases to get familiar with your topic.

Start by reading reference or encyclopedia articles. As you read reference articles, look for important vocabulary (keywords) and specific information that will help narrow your topic and create your research question. 

Also look for names of experts, government agencies and non-profit organizations related to your topic. These will help you with future searches.
