From the National Library of Medicine:
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce an update to the user interface of its PubMed Central (PMC) digital archive—a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal articles. PMC’s fresh look and feel is the first step in an ongoing effort to modernize PMC, create a more accessible user experience across NLM literature databases, and enhance the long-term stability of the PMC infrastructure.
The update, informed by user feedback, includes a reorganized homepage, easy-to-navigate help documentation, and streamlined article display. You will notice a similar look and feel between features in PMC and PubMed, NLM’s biomedical literature citation database. Article pages in the new design link to a new section in the PMC User Guide that shows how to access features in the new article page layout.
PMC houses more than 7 million full-text records, spanning several centuries of biomedical and life science research, and is used by more than 3 million users every day.
