To retain selected results for the duration of your session, tick the boxes alongside each one and click Keep Selected to save them as a line in your Search History. 

The checkbox to the left of one of the results is ticked, showing that it has been selected.

Saving results to My Projects

To save results permanently, first click My Account at the top of the screen and then Create Account. When you have created an account and logged in, you can access extra features.

  • To save a collection of items within Ovid for viewing again later, click My Projects alongside an individual item or tick boxes alongside multiple items and click + My Projects to add them all at once. You can add the items to an existing project or create a new one.
  • To make notes about a particular item click Annotate. It is a good idea to add the records to a Project first, so that it is easier to find them, along with your annotations, later.
