Databases for finding journal articles

PubMed vs. Medline

Medline is an important biomedical literature database that is part of PubMed (a free database from the National Library of Medicine).

Other commercial (for fee) database providers have incorporated that free Medline information into their databases. The above databases (Biological Abstracts and SciFinder-n) include Medline, so you are automatically searching it at the same time. 

There can be a lag of a few months between what is in PubMed and these commercial databases. If you need to see the most current research, then search PubMed | 503.943.7111 or 800.841.8261 | 5000 N. Willamette Blvd., Portland, OR 97203-5798
