It can be helpful to create a list, or even a map or cloud, of key words and phrases that are important to your research.
You can do this as a first step in the research process, and it can also be a living document that you revisit and reshape as you move through your research!
Think about how your keywords/keyphrases relate to the questions you are asking and grappling with.
To peruse specialized terminologies and lexica, or to look up background information that can help you formulate your searches, it's also helpful to consult reference sources. See the tab at the left for some examples.
