The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has announced the launch of the new PubMed. The new, responsive design is mobile friendly and reflects NLM’s ongoing efforts to transform PubMed into a modern hub with a fast, reliable, and intuitive search that connects people to the world’s leading sources of biomedical information.
PubMed is a free resource supporting the search and retrieval of biomedical and life sciences literature with the aim of improving health–both globally and personally. Each day, more than 2.5 million people search PubMed’s database containing more than 30 million citations and abstracts of biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.
NLM is committed to continued PubMed development, ensuring that PubMed remains a trusted and accessible source of biomedical literature today and in the future. Over the past 24 years, PubMed has been continuously updated to help users to find relevant information quickly and to keep pace with ever-changing information technologies. Features based on user research, including usability testing, analytics, and feedback from users will continue to be prioritized.
The new PubMed will become the default in spring 2020 and will ultimately replace the legacy version. The legacy system will continue to run in parallel for a period of time after the new PubMed is the default. Significant milestones such as the new site becoming the default and the retirement of the legacy site will be announced in advance via banners on the legacy site.
