A brief list of the most useful PubMed search field tags: these work in HubMed as well, as it's the same search engine.
- Journal Title: J Exp Med [TA]
- Date of Publication: 1998 [DP]
- Author: Jones TL [AU] (usually not necessary, as author names are automatically matched before the rest of the search).
- MeSH Heading: "immune tolerance" [MESH]
- Page Number: 223 [PG]
A quick way to find a specific paper is to use one author name and the starting page number, eg Jones TL [AU] 1343 [PG] (or even just jones tl 1343) - which generally only produces 1 or 2 matches.
Terms are joined with AND by default, but you can use OR or NOT manually.
There is no case sensitivity.
