New PubMed Filters Sidebar Replaces Limits Feature
As of May 10, 2012, the limits page on Pubmed has been replaced with a new filter sidebar. This filter side bar is displayed alongside the results page and its operational behavior is similar to the way limit selection operated previously. Once a filter is selected it will remain selected for all later searches unless it is cleared. In the example below, you can see some of the filters available on the left side bar. If you do not see the filter you need, you can find additional filters under “Choose additional” filters at the top and bottom of the side bar. Some filter categories will have more filters than can be displayed on the side bar. For those you can click on “more” to see additional filter choices.
Now we will select the Systematic Reviews filter.
As you apply filters to your results to narrow your search, the side bar will only display valid filters applicable to your results. In this example, randomized controlled trial review filter was removed when Systematic reviews filter was selected.
Free full text is now on the side bar while others such as “filter your results” will be done at a later date.
