|History of Medicine - New PubMed® Subset|
new subject subset, "History of Medicine," is available on the Subset pull-down menu on the PubMed Limits screen.
The History of Medicine subset contains citations to articles on the history of health-related professions, sciences, specialties, individuals, institutions, drugs, and diseases in all parts of the world and all historic periods.
This subset can also be used in a search as history [sb].
Example: tuberculosis AND history [sb]
The History of Medicine subset is a joint project between NLM's History of Medicine and Bibliographic Services Divisions and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Please see the article, History of Medicine-related Journal Citations Added to PubMed. NLM Tech Bull. 2001 Sep-Oct;(322):e4, for more information on the conversion of history citations.
The History of Medicine subject subset strategy is available from the NLM Web site at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/pubmed_subsets.html.
