Start your Web of Science search, by adding more rows so that you can keep your search concepts separate.
Then enter your keywords into the search boxes. Try entering one concept per box!
Try using some search strategies including truncation, quotation mark phrase searching, and the Boolean operator "or" to search for synonyms and related terms.
Use the words - AND, OR, NOT - to combine keywords.
Notice how we used - AND, OR - in this search.
Truncation = Use an * (asterisk) to search for the root of a word with varying endings.
Use quotation marks to indicate a phrase.
