When Masterfile opens, enter your search term in the box (e.g., “cars” or “mattresses”), then enter “CONSUMER REPORTS” under “Publication” — as indicated by red arrows below — and press the Enter key (or click on the Search button): A list of relevant articles will be displayed: consumerreports1 And that’s all there is to it!
