You should search multiple databases and select the articles based on the relevance to your area of expanded practice.

This means that you need to be careful in the included articles, ideally, they should be research focused (primary or secondary research) and you need to show how the findings are linked to your expanded practice topic. Be careful not to include too many commentaries as these are someone else\’s argument not yours.
