Combine searches using ranges – Eliminates the need to type long strings of line numbers when combining searches
Alerts for saved strategies – Set monthly alerts for strings saved on the Search Manager tab
Print search with counts – Create a print-friendly version of your search with counts using a single click
Type MeSH directly in Search Manager – Users can now directly enter MeSH terms using the Search Manager tab.
