This month PubMed made searching with limits and filters even easier. The search options are now in the left sidebar instead of on a separate page. These filters will remain active for subsequent searches until the selections are cleared, so if you can’t find what you are looking for take a look at the filters you may have set earlier. The NCBI YouTube channel posted a brief explanatory video and updated their PubMed tutorial to reflect these changes.

If you are interested in more PubMed or MEDLINE searching tips stop in for one of our upcoming drop-in classes.
