As you search in databases, you can discover the Subject Terms (also named "Descriptors" or "Subject Headings") that are applied to articles on your topic. This controlled vocabulary can be a powerful way of finding everything the database has on a topic without having to sort through a lot of irrelevant material.
However, as you can see from the examples, each database can have its own preferred terminology for the same concept. So, when you switch databases, make sure to check its thesaurus for the terms that will help you be successful.
