The “New” PubMed Is Here!

Posted by on November 18th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, NLM Products, PubMed, Training

An updated version of PubMed is now available! The new PubMed will become the default in spring 2020 and will ultimately replace the legacy version. You can also click on the new blue banner on the legacy PubMed home page to try the new PubMed. The new responsive layout offers better support for accessing PubMed content with the increasingly popular small-screen devices such as mobile phones and tablets. The interface is compatible with any screen size, which provides a fresh, consistent look and feel throughout the application, no matter how you access it. A single, responsive website means that the features you use on the desktop are also available on your mobile device, including library icons for libraries participating in the Library LinkOut using Outside Tool service. Find highly relevant articles more easily using the Best Match sort, now the default sort order in PubMed. Best Match uses a state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm that is trained on aggregated user searches. The Best Match algorithm ranks search results according to several relevance signals. For more information about Best Match, visit the article, Best Match: New relevance search for PubMed.

The new PubMed homepage

The new PubMed includes the following features you rely on for searching, as well as saving and sharing your results.

  • Access the same trusted database of more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature.
  • Activate the default filters or customize the filter menu to meet your needs.
  • Use the Results by Year graph to see trends in literature over time or to refine your search results by publication year.
  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography.
  • Go to the advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searches to create complex search strings.
  • Save your search and create an email alert.

NLM 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. For more details on the features in the new PubMed, watch the recorded webinars, A New PubMed: Highlights for Information Professionals, or NNLM Resource Picks: The New PubMed.
