NCBI Labs Project Update: PubMed Journals Discontinued

NCBI Labs Project Update: PubMed Journals Discontinued. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 May-Jun;(422):b12.

2018 June 27 [posted]

On June 15, 2018, PubMed Journals, an NCBI Labs project, was discontinued.

PubMed Journals was launched in September 2016 as part of NCBI Labs, a product incubator for delivering new features and capabilities to NCBI end users. PubMed Journals helped people follow the latest biomedical literature by making it simple to find and follow journals, browse new articles, and included a Journal News Feed to track new arrivals, news links, trending articles and important article updates.

We appreciate the feedback provided by our users that helped to make PubMed Journals a productive test of new ideas. In the time the experiment ran, nearly 20,000 people followed 10,453 distinct journals and each customer followed three journals on average. Though PubMed Journals will no longer exist as a separate entity, we hope to add its features into future NCBI products.

More information about NCBI Labs is available from the NCBI Insights blog.
