To narrow your search, utilize the advanced search options. This will allow you to use two or more of your keywords.
In EBSCO, always check the full-text option (found in advanced search). This eliminates the frustration of finding the title of a really great article, only to find the full version of the article is not available on the database.
Google Scholar searches academic journals, scholarly books, papers, etc. Try JSTOR first, as many articles on Google Scholar are abstracts and not full-text articles.
