Book Citations Added to PubMed; Display Changes
Book Citations Added to PubMed® and Changes to Displays
[Editor's note: These changes were implemented in PubMed on April 6, 2010.]
PubMed will soon be enhanced to begin including citations for a subset of books available on the NCBI Bookshelf. The first books to be added are, GeneReviews and Essentials of Glycobiology. A citation will be included for both the book and each chapter or section of the book.
Summary Display Changes
In order to accommodate the book and book chapter citations, the PubMed Summary display will also be modified. PubMed citations may include one of the set of labels and links outlined below. The Related articles link will also be renamed to Related citations.
New copper-colored labels (Books & Documents, Free PMC Article, and Free Article) provide users with a quick and easy way to scan the Summary display to find text that is freely available. The blue Free text links display for PubMed Central articles and Bookshelf items (see Figure 1) and, when clicked, open a new browser page with full text. When Free Article is displayed, use the title link to the Abstract format to find a publisher icon link to full text.
