TIPS: Try just 2-4 keywords. Avoid “fluff” words like impact and effect
Why? Words such as impact are used often and in multiple contexts, so you are not likely to get relevant results.
Why? Search engines and some databases can guess what you mean, but they may only return what you put in the search box.
1. What is the impact of climate change on the Oregon Coast?
2. What is the
impact of climate change on the Oregon Coast?
3. “climate chnage” = "climate disruption," "global warming"
Oregon = "Pacific Northwest,” “West Coast,” US
Coast = beaches, coastline, waterfront
TIPS: Search exact phrases by using quotation marks; Use broader or narrower terms and related words as synonyms
