NLM and Wellcome Complete Partnership to Provide Free Access to Hundreds of Years of Medical Research!

Posted by on February 19th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, General, NLM Resources, Search Tools


The National Library of Medicine and Wellcome have completed their partnership to make thousands of full back issues of historically-significant biomedical journals freely available through the National Institutes of Health life sciences repository PubMed Central (PMC), and through its European counterpart, Europe PMC. The NLM and Wellcome are pleased to report that over two dozen additional titles are now freely available, spanning three centuries and encompassing hundreds of thousands of pages. In total, the collaboration has increased PMC by over 650,000 pages and tens of thousands of individual articles.

The newly-available titles are free to read, download, text mine, and re-use via the PMC Text Mining Collections, which includes the PMC Open Access Subset and the Historical OCR Collection. License terms vary by title; visit PMC Back Issue Digitization for more details. For a complete list of available titles, visit the NLM web site.
