After you get a list of results

You may limit your search to scholarly/peer reviewed articles or limit by publication date

PubMed with EIU Electronic Journals
Most articles in PubMed are peer-reviewed, so enter your search:

The articles are generally sorted with the most recent articles first.  You may change the sort order to "Most Relevant" if that would be helpful.

Look to the right to open a link to the articles that may be available at EIU.

If the article you want is not available in fulltext, you may request the Article through our Interlibrary Loan Dept.   You should receive a copy of the article in your official campus email in a few days.  If you have questions about Interlibrary Loan, please contact Circulation Services at 217-581-6071 or Reference Services at 217-581-6072.
