[Editor's note: These changes were implemented in PubMed on June 29, 2016.]

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) link when available will be added to the end of each PubMed abstract display (see Figure 1).

The "Items per page" selection will be removed from the top of the results page because it is infrequently used by searchers (see Figure 2). The selection will still be available at the bottom of the results page.

To change the default "items per page" for all results consider using the My NCBI "Result display preferences" option (see Figure 3).
