NIH to Shut Down PubMed Commons
The NCBI Insights Blog is reporting that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is discontinuing PubMed Commons, a forum that allows authors to offer opinions and information about scientific publications in PubMed. NIH has decided that PubMed Commons’ low level of usage does not warrant continued investment in it. New comments will be accepted through Feb. 15, 2018, and comments will be viewable on the PubMed and PubMed Commons websites through March 2, 2018. After March 2, comments will be available by downloading them from the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI) website.
