PubMed to Gain OLDMEDLINE Citations

Over 1.5 million OLDMEDLINE citations will be added to PubMed. The citations are to articles from international biomedical journals covering the fields of medicine, preclinical sciences, and allied health sciences. The citations were originally printed in hardcopy indexes published from 1953 through 1965.

NLM expects to continue converting citations from its older printed medical indexes to machine-readable form and to add these OLDMEDLINE citations to PubMed as time and resources permit. NLM expects to add 1950-1952 data to PubMed in early 2004. Details for subsequent updates of new records are still to be determined. NLM anticipates a quarterly cycle for revised records. For details on OLDMEDLINE data (background, years of coverage, data content), differences between MEDLINE and OLDMEDLINE citations, and searching, see the NLM Technical Bulletin: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/so03/so03_oldmedline.html.

Once OLDMEDLINE citations are added to PubMed, they will no longer reside as a separate collection in the NLM Gateway. The Journal Citations category in the Gateway will contain a single collection of citations that cover 1953 to the present. Users can continue to use the NLM Gateway to search OLDMEDLINE citations which will be retrieved as part of the PubMed hits.
