 History of Medicine - New PubMed® Subset

Drop cap graphic of the letter A new subject subset, "History of Medicine," is available on the Subset pull-down menu on the PubMed Limits screen.

The History of Medicine subset contains citations to articles on the history of health-related professions, sciences, specialties, individuals, institutions, drugs, and diseases in all parts of the world and all historic periods.

This subset can also be used in a search as history [sb].

Example: tuberculosis AND history [sb]

The History of Medicine subset is a joint project between NLM's History of Medicine and Bibliographic Services Divisions and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Please see the article, History of Medicine-related Journal Citations Added to PubMed. NLM Tech Bull. 2001 Sep-Oct;(322):e4, for more information on the conversion of history citations.

The History of Medicine subject subset strategy is available from the NLM Web site at:
