Comments I Made Regarding this useful tool in a discussion of the site.

..

..
I have some comments.

..

First of all, this list is invaluable, in my opinion. I already have a link to this systematic analysis list of terms in my Meta-Analyis and Systematic Review research guide.
http://guides.temple.edu/Meta-Analysis
I also put a link to the entire Wiki website on my Database searching guide.
http://guides.temple.edu/databases
In addtion to the concept covered in the post I am responding to, this Wiki covers the topics below and more:

Applied Behavior Analysis
Autism Spectrum Disorder Terms
Dyscalculia or Mathematics Disability Terms
Elementary aged children
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Friendship Terms
Gifted Terms
Hearing Impairment
Inclusive Education
Information Overload
Information Retrieval Basics Powerpoint
Intellectual Disabilities or Mental Retardation Terms
Learning Disabilities
Native North American or Aboriginal Terms
Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Online Learning Terms
Quality of Life terms
Research Synthesis Terms
School Drop out
Searching the Literature Itself Terms
Video gaming
Vision Impairment Terms
Writing Terms

The problem is in the one search step and out databases so much in use today, one simply cannot use a small fraction of these terms let alone
combine them with a topic one is seeking a systematic analysis about.

..

This is why it is so important to teach the use of systems like OVID, EbscoHost and Proquest to students so they can learn how to do precise searching. This may not be needed for a large number of searches done, but when one wants to be comprehensive and/or evidence based, the terminology used will need to be more complete.

..

Just yesterday, I put a post on my blog regarding features that make a database good and it can be viewed here.

IMPROVING RESEARCH BY BROADENING DATABASE SELECTION HORIZONS BEYOND THE CORE DATABASES IN ONES FIELD AND THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX: WHAT CONSTITUTES GOOD DATABASES?

I certainly think that quality searching is not going to happen unless the student or faculty searcher starts with good representative terminology for their search strategy. My office has a lot of thesauruses on its shelves. I also do Google searches
[term] and synonyms
to find some useful synonyms, but lists like these are far better and save much time. They are good places to select the concepts wanted for a particular search. One can hope a lot more will be added to this website.
Also, over time, I have found that the “Synonym Finder” as a print book thesaurus has helped me a great deal with terminology for searches.

..

Thanks so much for sharing this resource.

..

Cinonym is also good sprinkled on buttered toast.

end of quoted post

..
One notices in the list so far some education, some psychology and some research terms that are covered in this Wiki. The depth of terminology
varies in depth of coverage, but if one is working with one or more of these concepts, one can get help finding related terms with this list and this is also, it would seem, a new and creative method of finding and presenting synonyms and does not take away from other tried and true methods as options. Finding related terms one needs all the help they can get.
Two recommended books for this work of finding synonyms
