How It Works

PubMed search of acoustic microscopy glaucoma

To search PubMed, enter your concepts in phrases into the search box. For most PubMed searches, it is best to:

  • Be specific.
    The more terms you enter, the narrower your search will be and the fewer irrelevant results you will retrieve.
  • Use no punctuation (e.g., no quotation marks).
    PubMed will find phrases for you.
  • Use no operators (e.g., AND)
    PubMed will add AND between concepts.
  • Use no tags.
    PubMed will differentiate topic words, journal titles and author names.

Focus on terminology, not syntax. This works because of a process called Automatic Term Mapping (ATM).
