PubMed

Access: Freely available Internet database
Description: A comprehensive electronic archive of the peer-reviewed literature relevant to the biological sciences. The PubMed search system provides access to the PubMed database of bibliographic information, which is drawn primarily from MEDLINE and PREMEDLINE. In addition, for participating journals that are indexed selectively for MEDLINE, PubMed includes all articles from that journal, not just those that are included in MEDLINE. PubMed also provides access to the molecular biology databases included in NCBI’s Entrez retrieval system. It is expected that access to additional National Library of Medicine databases will be added in the future.
Coverage: 1966-
Journals: The Journals Database can be searched using the journal title, the MEDLINE/PubMed title abbreviation, the NLM ID (NLM’s unique journal identifier), the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) abbreviation, and the print and electronic International Standard Serial Numbers (pISSNs and eISSNs).
Links: Has Get It! links.
