3. Reviewing and refining your searches

You will need to become confident in reviewing and refining your searches in order to:

  • make sure that the references you are retrieving are always as relevant to your research as possible, and

  • ensure that the number of hits that make up your results is manageable, i.e. not too many or too few to evaluate effectively.

Databases come equipped with extensive functionality to help you overcome these problems.
