Find hard to find refinements that enhance animal welfare -- refinements are where the most gains in animal welfare are to be found
Avoid the Red Flags including:
Listing Google Scholar as a primary database
Search words too narrowly focused
Wrong logical operators used
Too few keywords
Ensure the search is properly documented, so you’ll get full credit for a comprehensive search.
Increase the probability that relevant refinements or other information not missed—wherever it is.
Teaching protocols and DOD protocols require searches of specialized sources that even expert searchers find taxing. Save time and energy, let librarians wrestle with database and keyword choice and how to optimize unfamiliar search interfaces.
