PubMed has a new interface! You can try it out on the PubMed site. Currently, both the new version and the legacy version of PubMed are available (look for a link to the legacy site in the banner at the top of the homepage), although the latter will eventually be retired. The new design features a responsive layout for smaller devices, like smartphones and tablets, and an updated Best Match algorithm. Users can now also view results by publication year and limit their searches to studies for which the associated data are available. Many of the database’s most popular features – including its filters, options for saving searches and results, and the ability to create email alerts – remain. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) will continue to tweak these new features and make small changes to the site.
Students and researchers: If you’d like to learn more about PubMed’s new interface or if you’re using the database to complete a research project and need assistance, contact your subject librarian.
