Now Search PubMed from AIP's Scitation Platform
MELVILLE, NEW YORK, 11 July 2006 —The American Institute of Physics has initiated a multi-phase program that now allows users of its Scitation hosting platform to conduct searches of PubMed, one of the world's premier life sciences databases. MEDLINE is the largest component of PubMed, the U.S. National Library of Medicine's biomedical abstracts database. PubMed covers nearly 5,000 journals published in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries worldwide, primarily from 1966 to the present.
"As more research in life-science-related areas is published by AIP and its Scitation partners, we're attracting individuals from a broader range of fields than ever before," said Frank Perugini, Director of Online Services. "To better serve this growing audience, we felt it was incumbent upon AIP to provide them with access to a powerful research tool such as PubMed."
In the program's initial phase, the results returned from queries will be broad, much like those obtained in a keyword search. Once phase two is implemented this Fall, fielded searches will be enabled. This will allow for much greater precision, with searching by author, topic, dates, and article and journal title. In the final phase, which will be in place early next year, searches can be performed, and results returned, from both the Scitation and PubMed platforms.
Scitation (http://scitation.aip.org) is a division of the American Institute of Physics. It currently hosts nearly one million articles from more than 150 scholarly publications for 21 learned society publishers, in fields including physics, chemistry, geology, engineering, acoustics, and other sciences.
PubMed (www.pubmed.gov) is a service of the National Library of Medicine that includes more than 15 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's. These citations are from MEDLINE and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources.
