Filtering Your Results
After you search, most library databases will let you filter your results. In the MEDLINE database, for example, some of the major filters you'll want to use are Peer Reviewed, Language, and Publication Date. Subject: Major Heading is also a good one, to filter your search by subtopic.
Watch out! We encourage you to avoid the Full Text and Geography filters. Selecting Full Text will remove many articles that you can obtain elsewhere, and selecting Geography will filter on where a journal is published, not the location of a study.
