TIPS ON SEARCHING DATABASES AND ONLINE CATALOGS
Put an AND between words when you want to find all the words: Bosnia AND depression
Put an OR between words when you'd be happy with one word or the other or both: depression and (Bosnia OR Serb)
Use truncation symbols or wildcards to search for variants. E.g., Bosnia* retrieves Bosnia, Bosnia's, Bosnian, Bosnians, Bosnian's, etc.
If you get too much, limit your search to subject headings or descriptors.
Try a variety of terms. The following terms are all used in the library catalog: ethnopsychology, transcultural psychiatry, cross-cultural social psychology, national characteristics, intercultural, transcultural, multicultural, cross-cultural. Also use the names of cultural groups: Bosnians, Native Americans, etc.
