Refine your search with our new advanced search functionality…

With our new advanced search functionality, you can now do more, more easily.

You can access the advanced search page here, or by clicking on the cog icon to the right of the search box.

Key features are:

  • Auto-suggest functionality on the journal,
    author, funder and grant ID fields

  • Article section-level searching: where you
    can restrict your search to specific sections of full text articles (more about this in a subsequent post)
  • Data links and citations: easily select the
    databases that you are interested in
  • External links: search by provider
  • Hover help (see blue question mark icons) provided for the fields.

As you use the fields to build your query, a query builder box
at the top of the page (which can also be edited) displays the syntax of the search you are designing.

ever at Europe PMC, we are very happy to hear your feedback about this new release (see the feedback button at the bottom right of the search page) and where appropriate build it into future developments to the form.
