PubMed has a single search box. Because this database is so large, you may be overwhelmed with results initially. Both the Filters and the Best Match sort option are helpful options for narrowing your results.
In PubMed, you must click on the article title and go in the full record to see the Find It link for full text options. If you need a reminder of how to use the Find It link, please see the Full Text Linking tab.
PubMed's Advanced Search looks different from many databases. You must use the center Builder area to build your Advanced Search. In the Advanced Search each row stands for a different concept. Please see the linked document below for a reminder of creating an Advanced Search.
As with other databases, you can use the Title option to have your keywords searched only in the title, making the results more likely to be on-topic. Notice while you're building your search that PubMed is creating the search in the top box.
Easy Option 1:
In PubMed, use the Send to option. The easiest thing to do is select Send to, and then select File. The file type that is easiest to work with is Summary (text). You will then click on Create File, and a Notepad (text) file with a citation will be generated. Open the Notepad file, and update the citation to the desired citation style, such as APA. The default citation style from PubMed is National Library of Medicine (NLM), not APA!!
