Today's Friday Fix is about limiting results in PubMed. One challenge users sometimes have in PubMed is that the top results have mainly animal subjects like mice, rats, dogs, etc. However the user wants to find only articles with human subjects. The simple fix for this problem is to use the species filter and then select humans. This will filter out the results which are animal subjects, leaving only the ones with human subjects.
To see a demonstration of this process, review the following video: https://youtu.be/kEzDbTaLJmQ
Special Note: In the New PubMed, the species filter is under Additional Filters.
