I thought I would share this tip.
Via twitter I was asked by @AliceMBuchan if it was possible to restrict the results to all the primary research articles. Currently, we have four separate primary research ‘sections’:
- Key primary research (e.g. NEJM, Lancet, Evidence Updates)
- Controlled trials
- Extended primary research – around 300 ‘high impact’ journals
- Case reports – taken from the Cases Database
For secondary research we have a filter that allows a user to select ‘All Secondary Evidence’ but nothing similar for primary research. While I’m not sure there is demand for an ‘All Primary Research’ button I’ve been able to create a hack.
If you follow this link it shows such a search for prostate cancer. Simply remove the term prostate cancer from the search and add the search term(s) of interest.
