New PubMed : Clinical Queries

PubMed Clinical Queries

PubMed Clinical Queries provides specialized searches for clinicians:

  • Clinical Study Categories: Clinical search filters based on the work of Haynes RB et al.
  • Systematic Reviews: A customized search strategy to retrieve a broad set of citations that build consensus on biomedical topics and include: systematic reviews, meta-analyses, reviews of clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, consensus development conferences, guidelines, and citations from journals specializing in clinical review studies.
  • Medical Genetics: Search filters developed in conjunction with the staff of GeneReviews: Genetic Disease Online Reviews at GeneTests, University of Washington, Seattle.

Single Citation Matcher

More information about using the Single Citation Matcher:

  • The journal box includes an autocomplete feature that suggests titles as you enter a title abbreviation or full title. Titles displayed by the autocomplete menu are in ranked order based on the number of citations in PubMed.
  • After selecting a journal with special characters (e.g., ampersand, colon) when using the Back button to return to the Single Citation Matcher you must clear and reenter the title.
  • The author box also includes an autocomplete feature that suggests author names in ranked order based on the number of citations. Full author names may be searched for citations published from 2002 forward if the full author name is available in the article.
  • Click either the 'Only as first author' or ‘Only as last author’ check box to limit an author name to the first or last author.

  1. Click Clinical Queries from the PubMed homepage
