Once, I found the most logical articles that related to my research question, I was able to decide how I wanted to use them in my research to show evidence-based practices relating to my research question. To begin this process, a researcher would use logical search terms to search databases. It is important not to limit research by just “relying on the “magic” of the computer” (Rubin & Babbie, 2014, p. 165).
