Tips for Searching PubMed

  • Always capitalize Boolean operators (AND, OR, and NOT) when using them in PubMed.
  • Put the most important words of your search first, as PubMed will look for this word first.
  • Put quotations around phrases in PubMed (ex: "peripheral neuropathy"), so the system will not look for the words individually.
  • Remember that many levels of evidence can be filtered in PubMed under Limits>Article Type.
  • Use "Similar Articles" to find other articles on a similar topic.
  • Use the 'Cite' Button to the right of your result to site articles.  You can even modify the style in the lower right-hand corner.
