If you are looking for articles on a particular subject matter (e.g. marketing), use the "Search for" field in the left hand navigation column (see image below).
A standard word search across all fields, including document text will be performed and will return a broad range of results. When a tick icon is visible , you will have access to this content (see image below).
When no tick icon is visible, you will not have access to that content.
Other ICONS and their context:
Backfiles content (Articles which are only available with a Backfiles database subscription.)
Early cite content (A pre-print of a paper, subject to change before publication.)
Articles where only the abstract is available (no full text content.)
When you submit your search request (quick or advanced search), the results returned are divided into categories. Each category has its own results list. Simply select the type of content you wish to view on the search results page from the available tabs (see image below):
1. All. The first 5 search results from each of the following four categories are displayed in this category by default (see image above).
2. Journals. Journal results are articles from content published in Emerald journals and delivered within the Emerald e-journal collections such as Emerald Management Plus (see image below).
3. Books. Book results are chapters from content published in Emerald book series and delivered within the Emerald eBook series collections and the Emerald Online collections.
4. Bibliographic Databases. These results are combined results for Emerald Management Reviews and the following Emerald abstract and indexing databases:
(Note: You must subscribe to a bibliographic database to receive results from it.)
5. Case Studies. These results are from our online collection of peer reviewed case studies focusing on business decision making and management development throughout key global emerging markets (see image below)
6. Site Pages. This displays links to content on the Emerald website that match your search criteria.
When you want to be restrictive with your searches... You can use 'Advanced Search' to refine your search further. The 'Advanced Search' will allow you to perform your word search within a specific field or fields (e.g. Abstracts, Author and Article title). The 'Advanced Search' page provides three fields of search (see image below)
You can then for example search for the specific word or words of an article title and the name of an author. Boolean operators, such as AND, OR and NOT are also available within ‘Advanced Search’ and so is the option to refine your search by year of publication. All these additional options allow you to refine your search to return a lower number of results that better suit your search criteria (see images below).
For detailed instructions on the Advanced Search and functions available, please see our "Advanced Search Functionality" document.
Fewer results are obtained (see image below).
The results when using both "Quick Search" and "Advanced Search" are delivered in the same manner.
