  2. Enter your first keyword in the search box and click GO.
  3. Select the box for the subject heading that best matches your topic.
  4. Click the drop down box on the right of the screen which reads “Send to.”
  5. Select send to “search box with AND” or “search box with OR” or “search box with NOT.”
  6. Repeat steps for your next keyword.
  7. Click on “Search PubMed”.

Note: the newest citations may not yet have subject headings. You may wish to combine a subject heading search with a key word search if you are not getting many relevant articles.

If you find a good reference, look at the MeSH terms for it by clicking on the title and going to the full record.
