Literature Searching

PubMed filters

This is an optional step. You can use filters to quickly narrow your search results by article type, text availability, publication date, species, language, sex, subject, journal category, and age. The most popular filters are included on the sidebar by default.


To display additional filters on the sidebar: 

  • Click the "Additional filters" button at the bottom of the sidebar. 
  • Within each category, select the filters you would like to add to the sidebar.
  • Click Show and your selections will be displayed on the sidebar.
  • To apply the filter(s) to your search, click the filter(s) on the sidebar.
