About Search Hedges & Filters

Search hedges, or filters, are pe-formulated search strategies that have been developed by other researchers. These search strategies include a combination of controlled vocabulary and keywords designed to help limit your search to a specific topic, study design or methodology. Many of these filters/hedges have been reviewed and validated by teams of researchers. Using these hedges or filters can save you time.
