MGMT 590

Business Source Complete

In this example using the database Business Source Complete, I used the following strategy:

  1. Selected Advanced Search to bring up the search screen with multiple search boxes
  2. Used the Thesaurus to browse for official subject terms closest to my research elements
  3. Entered the terms in each box connected by AND
  4. Selected SU Subject Terms as the field for the database to search
  5. Limited the search results to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals

Additionally I could have clicked on the "+" symbol to add extra search boxes.

Web of Science

The Basic Search mode of Web of Science is sufficient to combine multiple fields and add extra fields to search. 


The Advanced Search screen of Web of Science gives you the option to create advanced Boolean search strategies all in one search box with field tags.
