Send to E-Mail

The Send to E-mail function allows you to send search results to an e-mail address. You may e-mail up to 200 items.

To e-mail search results:

  • Step 1: Select the items you wish to send. Make no selections to send all results (up to 200).
  • Step 2: Select E-mail from the Send to menu.
  • Step 3: Enter your preferences. You have the following options:
    • Format (the Abstract format offers the additional option to include the MeSH, Publication Types, Grant Information and other data)
    • Sort order
    • Number to send
    • Citation to start from (if sending in batches)
  • Step 4: Enter the e-mail address, edit the message subject line (if desired), then any additional message you wish to include. Click the E-mail button to send.


  • To send more than 200 records, send in batches using the Start from citation feature or use Send to File and e-mail the file.
  • To send the e-mail to multiple recipients, send the message to yourself, then forward it.
  • A default e-mail address may be stored via My NCBI User Preferences. See the My NCBI section for details.
