Fall 2010 PubMed Update
PubMed continues to add features that allow you to link to information and resources contained in other NCBI databases. A NEW Images Database will be linked to those citations that contain images in PubMed Central articles.
- If an article in PubMed Central contains images, thumbprints of several of the first images will display below the citation in the abstract view. A link to see all images will be available. In addition, mousing over the image will bring up a preview. Read the Technical Bulletin for more information with screen shots about this new feature. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/so10/so10_pm_display_ncbi_images.html
The Images Database is searchable on its own as well. Check it out here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/images. It is included in the list of databases from the drop down menus in PubMed and NCBI resources.
Remember that Copyright Restrictions may still apply to materials found in PubMed Central. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/about/copyright.html
- Please note that PubMed is in its annual “Year-End Processing” where changes to citations are being made to conform with 2011 version of MeSH and other changes. This means that NLM temporarily suspends the addition of fully-indexed MEDLINE citations.
