Simple Concept Mapping

Because concept maps illustrate a central theme and related themes, using these maps help focus a topic and create search strategies.From a concept map, like the one illustrated on the death penalty it is possible to:

  • Narrow down your topic (e.g., death penalty and age)
  • Add a clarification term to focus the topic (e.g., death penalty and age and public opinion)
  • Create a search strategy using synonyms (e.g., death penalty or capital punishment; age or minimum age or juveniles; public opinion or public attitudes)
