What is PubMed?

PubMed is a free resource developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The PubMed database inlcudes over 22 million citations to biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Content dates back to 1946 and is updated 6 days a week.

Most PubMed records are MEDLINE citations. MEDLINE is the National Library of Medicine’s premier bibliographic database containing citations and author abstracts from more than 5,600 biomedical journals published in the United States and in other countries.

See the Fact Sheet: MEDLINE, PubMed, and PMC (PubMed Central): How are they different?
