New Advanced Search on PubMed

In the new search interface you will find a search box on the top and new sections beneath it, which you probably already are familiar with:

> PubMed Search History - It displays your five last searches
> Search by Author, Journal, Publication Date, and more. These field searching screens allow you to choose specific fields to search in (including MeSH or subheadings) and to combine these fields (AND, OR). Author and Journal fields have the auto-complete feature for entering terms; for other fields you can use the helpful index feature
> Limit by Topics, Languages, and Journal Groups
