Accessing Age Group Filters in PubMed

Accessing Age Group Filters in PubMed

  1. Conduct a search in PubMed.
  2. On the Results page, look on the left where the default filters are displayed.
  3. At the bottom of the list, click the link for “Show additional filters.”
  4. Check the box for “Ages” and click the “Show” button.
  5. You should now have a filter section called “Ages.”
  6. However, this still does not display all of the age group options, so at the bottom of the list of ages, click the link for “Customize.”
  7. You should now see all of the age group options available. Check/uncheck boxes as appropriate for your target population age, then click the “Show” button.
  8. Once the age groups are displaying in the filters, click on the one you want to limit your search to studies identified as having that age group as subjects.

You can go through a similar process for other filters available.
