The primary source for scholarly information in the health sciences. This database is provided by the National Library of Medicine and indexes scholarly literature in medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and the preclinical sciences. The majority of citations in PubMed are also available in MEDLINE, but PubMed includes older citations and additional journals. Many links to full text are included for articles older than six months.
This is a multi-disciplinary database that provides full text for 4,500+ journals, which includes full text for almost 4,000 peer-reviewed journals, plus full text for more than 100 titles back to 1975 and further.
