PubMed Quick Tip #8

Ever used the Sort by feature in PubMed? This much overlooked feature can actually prove quite handy when viewing a set of search results.

Results are displayed with the most recently published articles at the top of your results. You can re-sort the results to see if you can find out any additional information that migh be helpful.

For example:

- if you re-sorted the results by Author, you might find what authors publish more often on a certain topic

- if you re-sorted by Journal, you can see which publications come up multiple times. This can help you decide where you might want to publish your research in this related field or what other journals you should consider searching for more information.
