Join concepts together using AND and OR.
Use AND when the concepts are not related such as sexuality AND "research methods" . This narrows the search as both of those words must be in the information that is being returned.
Use OR when the concepts are similar, and it does not matter which word is found in the information that is being returned. For instance, man OR male OR masculine. This broadens the search.
Use truncation when you want to allow for several spellings or variations on a word. For instance, sex* can stand for sex, sexes, sexual, sexualities.
