US National Institutes of Health Offers PDF/A Option for MEDLINE Indexing


Beginning May 1, the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health has modified its policy for indexing articles from electronic-only journals. To be indexed in MEDLINE an electronic-only publication must provide NLM with XML-tagged data of its bibliographic citations; provide robust current access to all its content under a license allowing efficient support of NLM operations, onsite services, and interlibrary loan, and have an acceptable archival arrangement and access to the published content.

US National Institutes of Health Offers PDF/A Option for MEDLINE Indexing

Beginning May 1, the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health has modified its policy for indexing articles from electronic-only journals.

To be indexed in MEDLINE an electronic-only publication must provide NLM with XML-tagged data of its bibliographic citations; provide robust current access to all its content under a license allowing efficient support of NLM operations, onsite services, and interlibrary loan, and have an acceptable archival arrangement and access to the published content.

Participation in PubMed CentralĀ® (PMC), is its preferred certified archive site; alternatively, participation in another certified archive site, plus submission of a PDF/A copy of each article to NLM is acceptable.
