Subject Databases

PubMed vs OVID Medline

PubMed = Public Medline

MEDLINE is the largest component of PubMed (, the freely accessible online database of biomedical journal citations and abstracts created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM®). In addition to MEDLINE citations, PubMed also contains, among other items, in-process citations which provide a record for an article before it is indexed with MeSH and added to MEDLINE or converted to out-of-scope status. More information here

If you are searching Epub Ahead of Print, In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE® Daily and Ovid MEDLINE® 1946-Present effectively, there is no reason to ALSO search PubMED. Ask your librarian for details.
