It's best to start out searching broadly on your topic without including the geographic area. Also, it would be helpful to start in the advanced search. Let's start by looking for the phrase poverty rate.

In order to limit our search to handbooks, we will want to require that the term handbook appear in the publication title. You'll notice from our results that the term handbook is appearing in the title of the book, The Oxford Handbook of Economics of Poverty. But the term handbook is not necessarily found in the title of the chapter article. By allowing the phrase poverty rate to be broadly discoverable, we will allow ourselves the flexibility of finding handbooks that publish chapters on poverty rates without necessarily having the term in the title.

There are several ways that LionSearch suggests you can limit the results of your search. However, I will caution you that the majority will not work for this search strategy. For example, I will not recommend using the facets under the heading Refine Your Search as a way to identify scholarly material. Also, I would not use the facet under Content Type, because that can be misleading as well.

The only facet that may be of use is Publication Date. You can also sort your results from oldest to newest, and that can be a good way to find out whether or not there are handbooks that are more current than the 1912 Oxford Handbook of Economics of Poverty.

So what do you want to look for, and how do you proceed with your search? You may simply want to browse the results, looking at the titles of the handbook rather than the articles. What titles appear most relevant? For example, you may want to explore further The Oxford Handbook of Economics of Poverty. We'll look at this later when we discuss evaluating and using the handbooks.

You could also look at the preview to simply read what the article is about, but also look at the subjects used to describe this particular article. Some of those subject tags might be more useful than searching for poverty rate. For example, you may want to look at poverty measure.

Also, you may want to simply go back to your search and take out the quotation marks so that you can find materials that don't necessarily have the phrase poverty rate, but have the terms poverty and rate. Unfortunately, LionSearch does not provide a search history. However, if you click on the folder, it should provide you with a search string in the search box, which you can easily copy and paste so that you can keep track of what it is you did.

Let's go ahead and explore The Handbook of Economics and Poverty. To do this, you can simply click on Preview. And in this case, there's is DOI link that you can click on. Or you can click on the article itself, and it will take you into The Oxford Handbook online where this particular article resides.

At this point, you want to look at the handbook itself. So click on Oxford Handbook of Economics of Poverty. And simply looking through the content, I would highly encourage you to look at the front matter. This provides you with a list of contributors with descriptions of where they're from, a little bit of information about their background. But also the front matter has a wonderful introduction and overview of the issues related to economics of poverty. This can be a rich article for getting a broad understanding of what it is you're looking at.

I would also explore some of these other articles that are in this particular handbook. You can see there is a wonderful article called "Poverty lines across the world" that will provide you possibly a way to look at articles that talk about poverty lines from different countries' perspectives.

Again, most databases have a feature that provide you with a way to site resources. You can see that in LionSearch, there are these quotes at the top, and you simply click on that, and you can change it to APA format. And you can simply copy and paste this into your Word document.

Because LionSearch sent you outside to Oxford Handbooks Online, this resource as well has a way to site these articles. You just simply have to look around. And in this case, it's this little pencil. Once it comes up, you will change it to APA style. And again, it will provide you with a way to simply copy and paste this into a Word document.
