What database/search engines do you use to do research?
I can't find a journal article on a topic using the database that I'm currently using. Thanks.

The best one is the one I currently use, and now it's Bing.
Microsoft offers two souped up versions. Kind of a "good - better - best" deal.

Have you tried Google Scholar?
Listen to R2, OP. Google Scholar is really good. I use it myself.
dogpile It's a meta search engine that presents the top results from multiple databases at once 9eg the results from google, yahoo, lycos, bing etc. . .)
Google Scholar, and then run the search in Google Books as well.
Use Google's advanced search to limit your search by domain, file type, etc. You have to first run a search, and then look at the bottom of the results page for the ADVANCED SEARCH link.
Google's Verbatim search function really allows you to winnow out a lot of false hits in your results. (After you've run a search, click on the SEARCH TOOLS option at the top of the results, and then select ALL RESULTS. At the bottom of the ALL RESULTS list, you'll see an option for VERBATIM. Selecting VERBATIM will allow you to retrieve ONLY the results that contain your search terms.)
