What's in PubMed?
- Almost 30 million records representing articles in the biomedical literature and a small selection of items from the NCBI Books database.
- Most PubMed records are MEDLINE citations.
- Other records include those in different stages of processing (including records provided directly from the journal publisher) but destined to be MEDLINE citations.
- A relatively small number of records that are included in PubMed but not selected for MEDLINE.
PubMed does not contain full-text articles.
