Special Instructions for PubMed


PubMed and National Library of Medicine logos

PubMed is the primary medical journal literature index for the National Library of Medicine. Our link to PubMed from ACC highlights journal articles that are available through ACC.

There are several ways you can limit your results to articles in the Veterinary Sciences:

  • On the main search page, under PubMed Tools, click the link for Topic-Specific Queries, and then scroll down to choose Veterinary Science in the Subject section. This will apply to all searches during your browser session.
  • Add AND veterinary [sb] to the end of any search to limit to the veterinary science subset. This will apply only to that specific search.
  • After any search, you can click the Veterinary filter link on the right-hand side of the results screen. This is a powerful tool that can be used in combination with other filters to limit to veterinary journal articles available through ACC.

Veterinary PICO Searching in PubMed logo βeta is a specialized search engine for veterinary articles in PubMed that uses the PICO model to search for evidence. PICO stands for:

  • Patient (or Population or Problem)
  • Intervention
  • Comparison Intervention
  • Outcome

Using a form, βeta can help you construct an evidence-based veterinary search in PubMed. It can be a little tricky to get good results, so be sure to check out the help page.
