Strengthening the evidence for maternal and child health programs

Find Emerging Evidence

New studies are continually being published. Use these links to generate automated searches of the most current research literature using the same search parameters that the project uses to identify articles for evidence reports. (See notes at bottom of page for details on the searches themselves).

Notes on Search Strings

PubMed Searches

These links provide you with the latest citations from PubMed, the National Library of Medicine's premier database of biomedical literature. Articles are listed chronologically with the most recently added items first and are continually updated as new research citations are added to PubMed. All entries are from English-language journals and from the last three years from date of searching. All searches open in new windows.

Cochrane Library Searches

These links provide a set of search strategies from the Cochrane Library, a collection of high-quality, independently reviewed evidence-based/informed articles. Click in the gray box to the right of the sub-searches. This will retrieve articles matching the topic of the sub-search. To find all articles on the entire topic area, click on the final box at the bottom right of the sub-searches. Cochrane does not allow you to enter future dates in searches, so the links below provide current resources as of April, 2018. Links will be updated on a regular, rotating basis. All searches open in new windows.
