Too Many Citations
  • Instead of explosions, try specific descriptors
  • Turn off extensive search
  • Use quotes or hyphens to search phrases
  • Use link subheadings in Disease / Drug Search
  • Qualify free-text to specific fields (e.g.
    title)
  • Human subjects
  • Recent publication years

67
Too Many Citations
  • English or other languages
  • Priority journals, online abstracts

  • Combine terms with AND, rather than subheadings
  • Search all fields instead of specific fields
  • Search free text scan titles and/or abstracts
    for appropriate descriptors
