Remember that good research is often about following up on hunches, testing out a hypothesis and then seeing where else (or to what else) it leads.

Good research is also about using language flexibly and strategically.  It's normal to try several search word combinations before you strike gold

Please reach out if questions arise at any point in your project. We'll triage by email or set up a time to meet in person.

Enjoy your research adventure!
