To build a search using History, begin by putting in your broadest search term. In this example, we will use public health as our main concept.
The result for the public health search is 4.46 million articles. These can be viewed as a search set by clicking on the Advanced Search/History page.
On the History page, our first set is given a set number identified by the # symbol - in this example it is #1. On the right side of the page the number of articles is shown under the Result column. In this case, a total of over 4.25 million citations.
Note that the numbers for your searches may vary depending if you have previously searched that day in PubMed.
We now have searched for malaria as a second search term and have 54952 citations. As in the previous result, the malariasearch also can be viewed by returning to the Advanced Search/History page.
We now will combine #1 AND #2 to create a combined search for the two terms – public health AND malaria.
Using the Options drop down menu, you also can combine terms by entering your new search term, clicking on a previous # plus the AND option. The current search term and the # chosen will be combined.
The search has narrowed the results down further to 20441 articles. Click on the link to return to the Advanced Search/History page.
Our search #1 AND #2 is now identified as #3.
The search has narrowed the results down further to 3769 articles. We will return to the Advanced Search/History page.
