Limits Change in PubMed

Friday, May 11th, 2012

PubMed website

As of Wednesday, PubMed has made a change of how limits are accessed.  Instead of a separate page, limits will be a sidebar down the left side of the results page.  The previous Limits page was not intuitive to most users.  Making the filters more prominent should bring greater attention to this feature.

For more about the change, read Canese K. PubMed Filters Sidebar Replaces the Limits Page. NLM Tech Bull. 2012 May-Jun;(386):e3.  A Y0u-Tube video is also available.

PubMed Improvements

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

From the NLM Technical Bulletin:

A new FAQ, Article Versions and MEDLINE/PubMed Citations, is now available. A version is a subsequent publication of a previously published article that incorporates new data or findings using a publishing practice designed specifically for rapidly communicating scientific results.

The PubMed Send to menu was updated to include a “Citation manager” selection.

The PubMed Abstract display now includes a “Save items” portlet that will provide users with an easy way to add items of interest to a My NCBI collection. My NCBI users that are signed in may click the Favorite button, which will turn blue when selected, to add the citation to a new My NCBI collection, Favorites.

PubMed + Healthy People 2020 = SEQs

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

logos

If you have ever wished that you could locate the perfect journal article to support one of the Healthy People 2020 objectives, there may be a solution! The SEQs (Structured Evidence Queries) on the PHPartners website were created with this in mind. The purpose of these SEQs is to make information and evidence-based strategies related to the Healthy People 2020 objectives easier to find. The National Library of Medicine has worked with subject experts to develop pre-formulated search strategies for selected Healthy People 2020 subject areas.

These one-click strategies search PubMed, a database of the National Library of Medicine that provides access to over 21 million citations from MEDLINE and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources.

The “pre-formulated” search strategies can save time and take the guess work out of choosing the right search terms. The terms and strategies for these Healthy People objectives were carefully chosen and constructed in order to return the greatest number references relevant to your research. The number of subject areas for which SEQs exist continues to grow, and currently covers fifteen Healthy People 2020 subject areas, including: Diabetes, Mental Health and Mental Disorders, Tobacco Use, and Vision.

Check it out by clicking on the SEQ box, prominently featured on the upper right of the PHPartners website.
