List of All Journals Cited in PubMed®

Approximately 43,000 records are included in the PubMed journal lists which are updated daily and include all MEDLINE® titles as well as OLDMEDLINE and other non-MEDLINE titles in PubMed. The PubMed journal lists cover the entire span of MEDLINE, not just currently indexed journals.

A few notes about PubMed journal lists:

  • The lists contain the same data but in different formats.
  • The records are not in alphabetical order.
  • The JrId is a sequential identifier number.
  • There are some gaps as records are deleted, so the bottom JrId number does not equal the total number of records in the file.
  • Full titles contain initial articles which may affect use of these data for searching and filing purposes.
  • The NlmId is the accession number for the journal record in Voyager, NLM Integrated Library System.
  • ISO Abbreviations are constructed at NLM to assist NCBI in linking from GenBank to PubMed.
