If you use more than one search term, you can combine them using And, Or or Not)
OR widens your search – it finds articles containing any of the terms, for example, help OR assistance OR support.
AND narrows your search – it finds only articles that have all of the terms, for example, students AND stress AND management

Search results are divided into different types of content. Each type of content has its own results list. Emerald will automatically display journal articles but you can select other types of content using the grey tabs at the top of the list.
We do not have full text access to all of the journals indexed in Emerald. If you see a small padlock icon at the top of an article, this shows that we can't get full text access from Emerald. However, we may have a subscription from a different supplier, so you should check using our serials solutions system. Click the blue article title, then 360 link check for full text. If we do not have access to the journal, you can apply for an inter library loan.
