The actual publication types will differ across the different databases. Publication types, like subject headings, are assigned to each article at the point the article is added to the database. Ovid Publication Types List - for Medline, Embase, PsychInfo etc. CINAHL (EBSCO) Document Types List NICE HDAS (for NHS) - for CINAHL, EMBASE, MEDLINE, PsycINFO etc. Some searchers use these publication types to limit their results to a particular type of trial design e.g. Other ways that publication types can be used is to limit a search (using a NOT command) to exclude e.g. letters, editorials etc. PubMed Clinical Queries.

Add it to the last line of your search strategy. If you are trying to locate prior systematic reviews: If you don't find anything when you use the SR filter, consider removing a concept from yur search strategy, i.e. make it broader. In the search example to the right, combinations of concepts are used to identify potential SRs as well as clinical trials studies. The rationale for doing it like is that authors don't always describe in their titles or abstracts exactly what they've done so we have to sometimes broaden the search a bit to ensure nothing is missed.
