Limiting Results to MEDLINE only

How to limit PubMed search results to MEDLINE only:

Sometimes it is helpful to limiti results to only those journals that are indexed in MEDLINE.  To do this:

  • Click on PubMed.                                                                                
  • Enter search string
  • Click on "Additional filters" in left-hand column
  • Click on "Journal"
  • Check the box next to "MEDLINE"
  • Click on "Show" - this will make it show up on the search screen; you still need to do the next step:
  • Check the box next to "MEDLINE" in left-hand column, and now it will limit results to MEDLINE journals only.
