Research Tools: Advanced Search, History, and Search Details Now Available on PubMed Labs
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is continuing to develop features on the PubMed Labs platform, and this new version of PubMed will eventually replace the current PubMed. See An Updated PubMed Is on Its Way for more information.
Advanced Search, including the Advanced Search Builder and History with search details, is now available in PubMed Labs.
The tools that are included with Advanced Search help users to:
- search for terms in a specific field
- combine searches and build large, complex search strings
- see how each query was translated by PubMed
- compare number of results for different queries
Additional functionality, such as the ability to save a search to My NCBI, will be added to the Advanced Search page in future updates. Please note, the layout and appearance of Advanced Search and other pages in PubMed Labs may change as updates and new features are introduced.
