Table of Contents: 2013 JANUARY–FEBRUARY No. 390
List of Serials Indexed for Online Users, 2013 Available in XML. NLM Tech Bull. 2013 Jan-Feb;(390):b1.
The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users (LSIOU), 2013 edition, is now available in XML format. The 2013 edition contains 14,555 serial titles, including titles currently indexed for MEDLINE as well as titles indexed over time which have ceased or changed titles. The titles are listed alphabetically by the journal title abbreviation.
Tailored lists of indexed journals may be generated from the NLM Catalog database [link removed] Limits page. While the 2013 XML version of the LSIOU is a snapshot in time, this Limits page can be used to get a "real time" list for the LSIOU; select the Journal Subset called "Journals currently or previously indexed in MEDLINE" limit. For a list of only the currently indexed MEDLINE journals, select the Journal Subset called "Journals currently indexed in MEDLINE." Display and sort formats are selected from the results page: click on the Display Settings link to choose a display format (for example, the Journal display) and an appropriate sort (for example, Title or Title Abbreviation). To save the entire list as one document, click on the "Send to" pull-down, "File" as the destination, choose a format and sort order, and then click "Create File." Click "Save" in the File Download pop-up box. Provide your directory location and desired file name.
Journals newly selected for indexing are announced on this NLM Web resource page three times per year (October, February, and June): Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE. Journals announced on this page are automatically part of the retrieval from the NLM Catalog searches.
