PubMed is your primary source for finding PHDL journals with a keyword or research topic. You typically use the special PHDL URL (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?holding=phdlnphco) or a MyNCBI account to set up your filters to call up results for PHDL articles.
Major changes are coming to the way you will find PHDL articles in PubMed. Users will no longer be able to set up a filter within MyNCBI to identify PHDL journals. That option as a filter is going away.
Users will need to start all of their searching from a special PHDL URL address or link that will change slightly from the current one on the PHDL page. The special link will provide the PHDL logo or button
for every citation listed for your search (remember, the link is seen viewing the Abstract by changing the Format).
To make these changes possible NPHCO is implementing a software utility to take the user from PubMed to the full article. If the article is not available through the PHDL, your article delivery options will be displayed and the article can be requested from your Partner Library.
This change aligns with the changes in PubMed that will coincide and you can read about that in The New PubMed is on the Way.
We’ll be guiding participating Public Health Departments with future updates, mailings, and special instruction when the change-over approaches.
For now, please be aware this change is coming. Contact us if you want to know more.
