Economics Research

This guide is designed to search as a launching point for general research in Economics, and as an aid in topic selection for Economics-related research

Search Operators

AND    

 Mandates the inclusion of the word or phrases somewhere in the record.

                        Example:          unemployment and inflation


OR      

 Used to account for variety in expressing an idea. Records will contain any one of the words or phrases in the set, not necessarily all.

                        Example:          GDP or gross domestic product


NOT    

 Excludes records containing a specified word or phrase. When using “not,” one must put “not” at the end of one’s search statement.

                        Example:          credit cards not debit cards

 


Truncation      

 Utilized to account for varieties of a word.  The database will find records containing words beginning with the word chunk you provide.

For example, a search for manag* would retrieve records containing any of the following:

Management, managing, managers, etc.

Keep in mind that the truncation symbol differs from database to database.  For example, while EBSCO databases use the asterisk (*), LexisNexis uses the exclamation point (!).  Consult the respective databases' HELP screens to learn the truncation symbol for the given database.
