E​very email system is different, but one thing you can do no matter what email system you are using is to add ukro@bbsrc.ac.uk​ to your address book.

Searching

The UKRO Portal has a search box in the top right hand corner. Type your search term and hit enter or click the 'search' button (magnifying glass).

If you are searching for a term with more than one word (e.g. research committee) all results will automatically contain both words - you do not need to type 'research AND committee'.

If you want to search for the entire phrase 'research committee' you will need to add quote marks around the phrase: "research committee".

Wildcards can be used. For example, entering 'eng*' will bring back results containing engineering, engineers, engagement. English etc.

General Filters

Under the search box, you can use the filter buttons to filter the search results. You can select Articles, Pages, Documents and Factsheets & Guidance.

Selecting Documents will allow you to narrow your search further down on PDF, Word, PowerPoint or Zip format.

Refiners for Articles

Click on the Article Type or Access Level to refine the search results for articles. There is also a filter on Publication Date. Use the sliders left and right to see the results. Alternatively, you can click on one of the tags in the tag cloud to narrow down your search results on a single tag.

If you require further assistance in using the search function, or cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us at: ukro@bbsrc.ac.uk
