Search Strings to Copy

Instructions:

For your convenience, we include search strings you can copy and paste into your searches. Please be advised, these strings are not complete searches, as they include no subject terms. They are only meant to help filter your searches to include only approved journals.

Using Advanced Search

When using the Advanced Search feature of OneSearch, paste the appropriate string into its own box and set the box as SO Journal Title/Source from the drop-down (as shown in the top box of the screenshot above).

Non-Advanced Search

If not using the Advanced Search boxes, include AND SO(paste content here) in addition to your other search terms. (The SO is equivalent to selecting Journal Title/Source from the drop-down, as SO means Source, and the parentheses are necessary).

For example: adolescence AND relationships AND SO("Journal of Family Ministry" OR "Spirituality in Mental Health" OR "Journal of Youth Ministry")
