Library PubMed Tutorial
Related Citations and Results
Being able to manipulate searches and display results the way you want them is an essential skill
PubMed runs its own search algorithm that finds citations that are similar to those found by your searches.
You can use this algorithm by clicking on the Related citations link associated with each citation found by your searches.
Try this with one or two of your search results.
Notice that the 'parent' citation is shown first and then around 100 similar citations follow, but in this example PubMed comes up with more than 470 related citations.
