Medline is a comprehensive index of biomedical research journals in medicine, nursing, healthcare, biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, and related fields.

Search Limiting Options

If you get too many results, Click on Advanced Search below the search box to refine the scope of your search. Consider these options:

(1) choose a publication type (case report, clinical trial, review article, etc.),

(2) select a journal subset (choose the Core Clinical AIM subset to search the prominent research journals that are likely to be available at UHD or other local libraries), or

(3) choose a language.

Start with one limit option, then add other limits as needed.
