2.Select an area of search for your topic. Ask yourself if you need the search topic to be in the article abstract, title, or anywhere in the article then type your search term.

3. Type Physical Therapy, and also select if you want it mentioned in the text of the article, the title or abstract.

4. .Limit to a date range if desired or required by your professor.

5. If you have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number you can type it directly here and the EJC will search for the article. You will sometimes find a DOI# listed for articles in the reference section of other articles or books you may have used.
