    PubMed: Customize Results Posted Friday, March 26, 2010, 10:58 am
    You may now customize the way in which your PubMed search results are displayed. The customization includes being able to view article abstracts rather than the current citation only format, change the number of items viewed per page, and how the results are sorted. (Currently, the articles most recently added to the databases are shown first. This does not insure the most recently published articles are first; rather the newest articles indexed into the database are at the beginning.)

    To customize your results, sign in to My NCBI, click on Preferences in the left side menu. A new screen will open with two sections titled Common Preferences and PubMed Preferences. Select Results Display Settings, the last selection under PubMed Preferences.  Using the buttons, you can then select how you would like the results displayed and click Save. Following this process, each time you log in to My NCBI, your results will display as you have selected them to appear.

    If you would like assistance in setting your preferences, please stop by the Library of the Health Sciences Reference Desk.
