PubMed will launch new interface in 2020

PubMed is launching its newly designed interface. During the transition phase, you’ll be able to toggle back and forth between the new PubMed and the “legacy” version by selecting the highlighted links on both the new PubMed and the legacy PubMed home pages.

New interface features include:

  • “Cite” feature so you can cite references easily in popular style formats (AMA, APA, NLM, or MLA);
  • Option to share references via social media or a permalink;
  • An improved mobile search experience;
  • A save to CSV file format option;
  • Search results sorted by best match as default as opposed to the most recent articles.

Familiar features will still be there – including Clinical Queries, Advanced Search, Single Citation Matcher, and the ability to sign into your MyNCBI account.

To note – be aware that once you select to view or work in the new PubMed, it will become your default interface. You can always return to legacy PubMed by selecting the option in the yellow banner near the top of your screen in the new PubMed.

Tips handout and video view NLM’s FAQ’s [PDF] with tips for using the new PubMed, or watch their video with an overview of the new interface.

Other training content – keep up to date with other online training options at NLM’s PubMed Online Training page.

Give PubMed feedback – also note the green “Feedback” button at the bottom of the new PubMed. If you like (or don’t like!) what you see in the new interface or have questions, you can use this option to give feedback or ask for help.

Aggie Tip!
