PubMed Central

PubMed Central (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine. PMC is a repository for journal literature deposited by participating publishers, as well as for author manuscripts that have been submitted in compliance with the Public Access Policy mandated by NIH and similar policies of other research funding agencies.

What is the difference between PMC and PubMed?
  • PubMed is a database of citations and abstracts for more than 25 million articles.
  • PMC is an electronic archive of over 3 million free-access full-text journal articles, most of which are indexed in PubMed. PMC also has some additional items, such as book reviews, that are considered out of scope for and are not included in PubMed. For more details, please see "MEDLINE, PubMed, and PMC (PubMed Central): How are they different?"
