PubMed Overview

Containing more than 34 million citations from Medline, life science journals, and more, PubMed is one of the largest databases of biomedical literature in the world. While PubMed's content is focused on biomedicine and health, it also indexes some articles that cover the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering. 

PubMed is available for free to the public and is a product of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The PubMed database is predominantly comprised of citations and their accompanying abstracts; PubMed contains very few free full-text articles.     

The Health Sciences Library provides the WCM-Q community access to an extensive collection of full-text articles that are integrated with PubMed.
