The new PubMed is here!

The updated interface includes a responsive design to improve the mobile experience as well as improved search capabilities using a best match sort.

PubMed includes the features you rely on for searching, saving, and sharing your results.

  • Access the same trusted database of more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature.
  • Use the default filters or customize the filter menu to meet your needs.
  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography.
  • Save your search and create an email alert.

This version of PubMed will become the default in early 2020 and will eventually replace the legacy PubMed.  NLM will continue adding features and improving the user experience, ensuring that PubMed remains a trusted and accessible source of biomedical literature today and in the future.

  1. Why is NCBI announcing “The New PubMed” when it still lacks many features of the classic version? On my Samsung S10 mobile device, the Chrome browser can no longer even open the NCBI PubMed home page (it hangs up on a blank screen) while Firefox can open it and I can toggle between the new and classic views. But searches run in classic (default) view from Firefox lack check boxes so the results can’t be selected, while searches run in new view can’t be sorted. Also in new view, adding to collections is very time consuming since the list comes up in random order (maybe date created?), instead of alphabetical as in the classic version.

    Switching to Dell laptop, both Chrome and Firefox can access PubMed and the classic view works as expected, with checkboxes next to sortable results, and when “add to collection” is selected, an alphabetical list is presented. The new view also gives checkboxes and sortable results, but when I try adding results to collections, I get error message: “Unable to load your collection due to an error.”

    1. another problem: searches run from the new and classic views on full site give different results. I searched for (carbon monoxide intoxication) and and got 865 results in classic view versus 1192 in new view

      1. they got rid of the “export to citation manager function”. or else it’s hidden and i cannot find it

      2. Agreed, this is a major problem! I wonder if a primary database must have switched or taken off line, rather than just a change to the interface, because I am seeing this problem on a private site that retrieves citation data as well as on the new vs old views.

  2. I am receiving a ‘404 page not found’ error whenever I try to access the NIH manuscript submission portal. Is there a bug in the system?

  3. Like many others, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of RSS feeds/alerts in the new PubMed.

    The “Create RSS” feature — fortunately, still available in legacy PubMed — needs to be integrated into the new PubMed before legacy is retired.

    Thank you for updating us on the progress of the new PubMed.
