PubMed has Changed!

PubMedIf you search PubMed, you have noticed major changes to its look and feel. People with a MyNCBI account will not have to recreate searches or accounts. They will eventually map to the new interface. Highlights include:

  • The results page now shows abstracts with your highlighted search terms
  • A “Cite” button on the right side of an individual record, to produce a correct citation in 4 popular styles
  • Being able to page through your results from the abstract screen, instead of having to return to the results list to click the next citation
  • More responsive design for mobile devices – more than 50% of PubMed searches are done on a mobile device 

Both the new PubMed and the old PubMed will be available throughout early 2020. Eventually, only the new interface will be available.
