While you can also search ERIC or PsycInfo using keywords of your choosing, you will get more precise search results if you use Thesaurus terms. That's because searching by keywords requires matching the exact words found in a record, while searching by Descriptors allows you to locate records indexed by subject, regardless of the terminology the author may have used. The ERIC or PsycInfo Thesaurus will allow you to conduct systemic searches and save time by reducing guesswork and trial-and-error methods.
