Finding Test Instruments: PubMed

A guide on finding surveys, questionnaires, and research instruments.

Searching PubMed

PubMed is the Interface for searching MEDLINE, the online index of biomedical journal article citations from 1950 to present. Premiere database of medical literature.

As with all databases, searching by test title is very easy in PubMed.  If you want to browse tests, these MeSH Terms & Subheadings may help you.  In the list below, you can see that some examples (diet surveys & health care surveys) are more specific than others (questionnaires & data collection).  

Add your area of study to any of these headings:


Surveys or Health Surveys or Health Care Surveys

Data Collection

Health Impact Assessment

Test Anxiety Scale

Diet Surveys

Statistics and numerical data

Self Report
