Updated PubMed is Testable Now in PubMed Labs

NCBI is working on updates to PubMed which will eventually replace the current version. The updated PubMed is viewable on the experimental PubMed Labs platform.

Features of the upcoming version of PubMed include:

The results page will include highlighted snippets of text from article abstracts.

Content from PubMed, Bookshelf, and PubMed Central will be merged into PubMed indexing so that relevant information not ordinarily available in a PubMed record, e.g. reference citations from PMC, can be displayed.

Responsive design featuring a mobile-first, responsive layout providing an improved search experience from mobile devices and tablets.
