New PubMed is Here

New PubMed is here! In case you haven’t heard, PubMed has been in the process of getting a new look with improved features, while remaining a trusted source for biomedical literature.

PubMed’s updated site will become the default on/after May 18, 2020. The new interface has been optional since late last year, giving researchers the opportunity to test out the capabilities of the new system and provide valuable feedback.

New features include:

  • Responsive website – that means that you can use it on your computer, tablet, or phone and get the same functionality and features across all devices
  • Share information easier – want to share your newly published research? You now can use their social media buttons or create a permalink
  • Citations – quickly view the citation of an article in a preferred format: AMA, MLA, APA, or NLM
  • Finding the next article – page to the next or previous search result from the abstract screen and get a preview by hovering over the next/previous result arrows
  • Searching capabilities – perform basic topical searches using words or phrases without quotation marks/special syntax while still maintaining the option for advanced searching
  • Improved mapping/synonymy – searches automatically include plurals/tenses with improved British/American mapping terms so you don’t have to worry about including every variant form of spelling
  • Finding specific articles – use elements of a citation in the search bar to find a specific article with their enhanced citation sensor

The legacy version of PubMed will be available and will continue to receive updates to citation data for a few months after new PubMed becomes the default. After this time, legacy PubMed will be retired. Any saved links to the legacy site will be directed to the default. To access legacy PubMed, follow the links on the top of new PubMed’s page.
