PubMed Central (Internet)
Recently the National Institutes of Health, which funds a major portion of biomedical research
in the U.S., added a requirement to its research grants that resulting articles must be available,
free, within a reasonable period of time. PubMed Central is their suggested mechanism for this open
access policy. It includes significant portions of many U.S. biomedical journals, starting c. 2000;
also it has incorporated many British biomedical research articles published under a similar open
access policy in the U.K.. This webpage is extremely useful if you already have a citation to a
specific article. If you're looking to find articles on a topic, Medline via
or the free Medline search engine (PubMed)
is a better choice than searching title-by-title.
