Building a Comprehensive Search in PubMed In-Person

Do you need to build a comprehensive literature search for your dissertation? Are you required to complete a systematic or scoping review as a class assignment and need help developing your search strategy? Do you need a few relevant articles on your topic, but are struggling to find any? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Divide your research question/topic into searchable concepts
  • Use two methods to find articles on your topic
  • Brainstorm relevant synonyms
  • Search for MeSH terms on your topic
  • Use AND, OR, NOT correctly
  • Use keywords & MeSH terms in PubMed to find articles
