We will view one final additional set of filters by clicking the Search fields box and Apply.
A new drop down menu is displayed. We will highlight the Affiliation option and click on Apply. After this filter is activated, we will type WHO in the PubMed search box and click on Search.
The results of the WHO affiliation search are 6176 citations. In the Abstracts display option, WHO can be located in publisher description.
We now will activate the journal Search field filter, enter emerging infectious diseases in the PubMed search box and click on Search.
The results of the emerging infectious diseases journal affiliation search are 5870 citations. This search lists the total number of articles from this journal in PubMed.
We now will activate the Author Search field filter, enter ribeiro in the PubMed search box and click on Search.
The results of the ribeiro author search are 8688 citations. This search lists the total number of articles by all authors named ribeiro in PubMed.
The original HIV and pregnancy search has been displayed. We will discuss the Text availability filters.
In this example the Free full text available filter has been activated. The search results are 2714 citations. This lower number does not include any HINARI citations. Therefore, we recommend not using these filters.
Reminder: While working with Filters, you probably noticed the line that Text availability Filter that has the Abstract, Free full text, Full text available options. By clicking on these options, you would filter your search to include all articles with abstracts or full text articles or those articles that are available as free full text by various publishers or those citations that have abstracts. Note: if you click only on Free full text and NOT Full text, your HINARI tab will be limited to only articles that are both free full text and HINARI – a significantly less #.
We now will use Advanced Search option that enables you to use the Builder feature. Access to Advanced Search is from the initial PubMed page or the Search Results page. Advanced Search
In the Advanced Search Builder, we have opened the Fields drop down menu. Note the Text Word and various MeSH options. You can add terms in all or specific fields using the AND, OR, NOT Boolean operators.
We have added the Text Words tuberculosis and drug resistance to the Builder search boxes. We have used the AND Boolean operator. When entered, these search terms are displayed in the box above the Builder.
Note that you can display or hide the Index list. We have displayed the initial list of index terms for tuberculosis. You can enter any of these terms into the search box.
We now will click on the MeSH Terms option in Builder and insert the term developing countries into the search box. We will run the Search.
The results of the tuberculosis AND drug resistance AND developing countries search are 122 citations. To return to Advanced Search, click on the hypertext link below the PubMed Search box. Note, in the Filter your results list, that there are 32 Free Full Text and 47 HINARI citations.
We have returned to the Advanced Search Builder page. Note that the Search History has been activated and lists the recently completed search as #1. You can return to the Summary display of the search results by clicking on the Items Found #. In Module 4.4, we will discuss the Search History option and how to use it to combine search results.
