Search Tips

General Search

The general search function includes the following fields: title, author, abstract and related concepts. You may enter one or more words in the search field. Please note: To search for an exact phrase, words must be in quotes. Although the search function is not case sensitive, it will not yield results that have accents.

Advanced Search

Use the Advanced Search option to refine your search and narrow the results according to the parameters listed below.

Enter the title, abstract and related concepts associated with what you are looking for.

For the Author field, you can enter as many names as you wish. There are two ways to do this: Simply enter the name(s) in the text field, separated by a space or comma. If you are not sure of the exact name or spelling, click on "Complete list," where you will see all authors listed alphabetically. Tick the box next to the name of each author you are interested in, and it will appear as a list on the right-hand side of the page. When you have completed your selection, click on the button "Insert authors." You will return to the Advanced Search page, and you can proceed from there.

Publications can be searched for by title. If you are unsure of the exact title, you can enter one or more words from the title. Please note: If you add more than one word, the search function will only return results listing those words in the order that you entered them.

It is possible to search by the publication's ISSN, ISBN or DOI reference, if known. You can also search for papers included in the IESE catalog by their official codes, if known.

You can search for articles published between a particular time period by entering the month and year in the from/to fields. If you know the exact date, you must enter the same date in both the from/to fields.

You can narrow your search by language (Spanish, English, Catalan). If no language is selected, the search will display documents in all available languages.

All documents are classified according to various business disciplines. Select your preferred area of interest from the 14 different areas listed in the drop-down menu.
