  2. Type or click on the operator/function "AND"--depending on the facility you have available;
  3. Choose an additional term to narrow your topic to your interest (see examples below);
  4. Repeat 3 and 4 to further narrow down, as needed or desired; and
  5. Limit to a reasonable time period, such as recent few years or months.

    Examples of additional terms: "United States", inflation, finance, healthcare, bank*, telecommunications, "information technology", etc.

    Two formed search statement examples: econom* AND eurozone  ;  economics AND green* AND business
