1. Pick the right database.

2. Pick the right keywords.

  • Sickle cell is more formally known as sickle cell anemia, so you might want to type the whole name in: sickle cell anemia
  • If you want articles that combine sickle cell anemia with DNA, you might try searches such as:
    • sickle cell anemia and DNA
    • sickle cell anemia and genetics
    • sickle cell anemia and genotype

3. Limit to scholarly articles.

  • Our answer on finding Scholarly or Peer Reviewed articles should help with that...there is a simple box to check to limit your search. Click here to find out where that box is!
