Review - Saving the Search
In this exercise, you were asked to find articles on using light therapy to treat seasonal depression, save the search and set up weekly automatic updates in Abstract format.
This is a suggested answer. Your approach, as well as the number of results retrieved, may vary. New citations are added regularly to PubMed.
- Step 1: From PubMed, enter the search terms light therapy seasonal depression in the search box and click Search. (Note that these terms map to the MeSH terms phototherapy and seasonal depression -- See Details).
- Step 2: Click on Save Search. (If you are not already signed into My NCBI, you will be prompted to do so.)
- Step 3: Edit the name of the search (if desired), then click Save.
- Step 4: Select a weekly update in the Abstract format.
- Step 5: Click Save.
