New PubMed Interface to Launch in 2020

In early 2020, PubMed will launch its newly designed search interface (click to connect)

Sign up today for our next webinar on Fri. Mar. 6; 1-2p where we will discuss and demo the new interface features. Or, attend an in-person class for tips and instruction on advanced literature searching in New PubMed; our next in-person classes will be held on Mon. Mar. 9; 12-1pMon. Apr. 6; 12-1p, and Tues. May 5; 12-1p. 

New interface features include:

  • Ability to cite references quickly in your preferred citation style format (AMA, APA, NLM, or MLA);
  • Option to share references via social media or a permalink;
  • A seamless search experience on your mobile device;
  • Search results sorted by best match by default as opposed to the most recent articles.

All of your favorite features will still be there – including clinical queries, the advanced search, MeSH database, search details, and your MyNCBI account. Additionally, you'll be able to export citations to citation management tools (e.g., EndNote, Zotero, F1000, Mendeley) through the Cite feature.  Once New PubMed becomes the default interface, Duke's specific filters to help you quickly narrow search results will also appear. 

Caveats: You can check out this new interface now, but please note that there may be some limited connection to the full text articles via Duke's journal subscriptions at this time (look for the GetIt@Duke icon). Additionally, please be aware that once you select New PubMed, it will become your default interface. You can always return to legacy PubMed by clicking the option in the yellow banner near the top of your screen in New PubMed. 

The National Library of Medicine has created a Tips for Using New PubMed handout.
