The Basics: Simple Searching & Viewing Results
For a basic keyword search, type the word or words you are looking for into the search box, and click Search. PubMed will suggest phrases that complete your entry or that are related to the words you're entering. The next page will show your search results.
Setting Filters (aka Limits)
Use the filters on the left sidebar to narrow down your results by specifying different categories such as language, type of article, age, gender, etc.
Look for the icon or another "free full text" icon in the top right of the abstract page, and click the icon to access the full article text.
