A Quick Scopus Tip


Don't forget, when looking at the results screen in Scopus, you have many limiting options located on the left-hand side of the screen. When searching Scopus for HDFS-related materials, it will likely improve the relevance of your results if you limit by subject area. First, submit a search. Next, find the 'Subject Area' limiter on the left hand side of the results screen and check the box next to 'Social Sciences.' The last step is to choose, 'Limit to.' If we had chosen 'Exclude,' we would have excluded articles with a social sciences focus, and that would not be good to do when researching HFDS topics (generally speaking).
