15 Exercise 1 Maternal pregnancy diet and maternal health outcomes

16 1. Identify the keywords in your topic 2. Find the synonyms of the keyword 3. Look for different variations of the keyword 4. Use Boolean operators 5. Construct the search statement Go to Web of Science Pregnancy / gestation Diet / intake / nutrition Health / wellbeing Nutrition – nutrient – nutrients => nutri* AND – Use to find records containing all terms separated by the operator OR - Use to find records containing any of the terms separated by the operator (Pregnancy OR gestation) AND (diet OR intake OR nutri*) AND (maternal OR mother) AND (health OR wellbeing) Maternal pregnancy diet and maternal health outcomes

17 Ruthenium carbonyls for bond activation Exercise 2

18 1. Identify the keywords in your topic 2. Find the synonyms of the keyword 3. Look for different variations of the keyword 4. Use Boolean operators 5. Construct the search statement Go to Web of Science Ruthenium carbonyls for bond activation Ruthenium / Ru Activation / Initiation Carbonyl -- carbonyls -- dicarbonyl  *carbonyl* Bond – Bonds – bonding  bond* (Ruthenium OR Ru) AND *carbonyl* AND bond* AND (activation OR initiation) AND – Use to find records containing all terms separated by the operator OR - Use to find records containing any of the terms separated by the operator

19 Exercise 3 Design and synthesis of conjugated polymers

20 1. Identify the keywords in your topic 2. Find the synonyms of the keyword 3. Look for different variations of the keyword 4. Use Boolean operators 5.
