Search Tips

Web of Science uses keyword searching—there are no subject headings.

  • use truncation to capture variants (Psyc* = psychology, psychiatry, psychologically)
  • place quotation marks around words you want together (“pain management”)
  • combine search terms using AND
  • search using synonyms and related terms with OR
