The new PubMed is here!

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List, All Members

After extensive development and thorough testing in the PubMed Labs environment, NLM is ready to start rolling out the new PubMed to users everywhere! The PubMed communications team has released a series of key messages about the new PubMed, which appear below.

Also, today a new banner was posted on the PubMed homepage encouraging users to try the new PubMed. And finally, an NLM Technical Bulletin article has just been published, (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/nd19/nd19_pubmed_new.html) providing more details on what’s new in the new PubMed. This is the start of a “soft launch” which will take place over the following weeks and months during which time NLM will ramp up promotion of the new PubMed. NLM expects the new PubMed to become the default option in the spring of 2020.

Key messages:

  • The new PubMed is available now! Try it!  You can start using the new PubMed today at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/, or by clicking on the banner at www.pubmed.gov.
  • The new PubMed offers a clean, easy-to-use interface, and was designed from the ground up to be mobile-friendly. The new PubMed interface was built using modern web standards, with a responsive layout, making it easier for new users on any type of device to find what they’re looking for.
  • The new PubMed is designed to help you find what you need, fast. The improved Best Match sort order uses a state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm to help elevate the most relevant articles to the top of your results list. Improved citation and title sensors are built into the search box, making it even easier to find an article based on known citation information.
  • While it may look different, the new PubMed includes the features you rely on, and gives you access to the same trusted bibliographic data. The new PubMed includes the key features that have long been a part of PubMed, including:
    • customizable filters to help you narrow your search,
    • tools to save and share your search results,
    • an Advanced Search Builder that lets you search for terms in a specific field, see how your search is being translated, and review your search history; and,
    • options to set up e-mail alerts to be notified when new results are available.
  • Starting in spring 2020, all PubMed users will be redirected to the new PubMed. Stay tuned to banner messages on all PubMed pages for more details.
  • The new PubMed will continue to evolve to meet user needs. NLM is committed to continued PubMed development, and will continue adding features and improving the user experience, ensuring that PubMed remains a trusted and accessible source of biomedical literature today and in the future.
