For finding the "oldest" article

Finding the oldest article on a topic can be difficult.  Keep in mind that the database you use needs to:

  • Cover the years you need
  • Cover the topic you need (index major journals in your area)

If you know a key researcher in your field, you can try an author search.

Once you've found your modern and/or seminal article, look for the oldest cited article in that paper.
