Scholarly journal articles about health and medicine, nursing, audiology, and biology. PubMed includes the MEDLINE database, but has newer content and additional life science journals. PubMed is late 1940s-current.
PubMed is the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) premier database of scholarly citations covering nearly 4,500 journals published in the U.S. and more than 70 other countries. New citations are added weekly. PubMed is more current than MEDLINE via EBSCO and in addition to providing access to MEDLINE, PubMed provides access to:
- The out-of-scope citations (e.g., articles on plate tectonics or astrophysics) from certain MEDLINE journals, primarily general science and chemistry journals, for which the life sciences articles are indexed for MEDLINE
- Citations that precede the date that a journal was selected for MEDLINE indexing
- Some additional life science journals that submit full text to PubMedCentral(c) and receive a qualitative review by NLM.
