A New Look for PubMed Central

Like PubMed® and Bookshelf, PubMed Central® (PMC) has undergone a facelift, not only to enhance its overall look and feel but also to provide users with easier access to PMC resources and information.

Specific improvements include:

  • A revamped homepage, which offers better navigation through the site as well as direct access to resources such as the Users’ Guide and NIH Public Access information
  • Redesigned Advanced Search and Limits pages
  • An updated search results format
  • Direct access to images in PMC articles
  • A new organization and updated appearance for PMC’s informational pages, including drop-down menus for navigation links
