What’s New at PMC (PubMed Central)

From a New in PMC Post:

In 2021, PubMed Central (PMC) continued to grow and evolve in its role as a repository for research support by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other partner funding agencies. Around 1.3 million articles have been made publicly accessible in PMC under the NIH Public Access Policy; and the volume of NIH-supported articles added to PMC with associated data content continues to increase annually (59% of articles in 2020 included supplementary material and/or a data availability statement vs. 27% in 2009). Other recent activities include:

Over the last year, PMC has also continued to pilot the curation and ingest of NIH-support preprints reporting COVID-19 research. There are now over 3,000 preprint records discoverable in PMC, accelerating and expanding discovery of NIH research.
