As you scroll through the results, look at the bottom of each citation. You will see Subjects: followed by a list of terms. You can use these terms to narrow or revise your search.

Business Source Complete

If you would like to limit your search results to include certain keywords found specifically in the title or subject fields, you can use the Advanced Search feature and select where to search for your term. Advanced Search will typically be a link found at the top of the search page or near the search box.

Try the following search in Business Source Complete’s advanced search. The two letters before the search terms (i.e. "SU" or "TI") is a shorthand way of searching specific areas of an article (like subjects or the title) to narrow the search.

TI “conflict resolution” 

SU “conflict resolution” AND (personal OR interpersonal)
