PubMed is a leading and free database of references and abstracts published in academic journals pertaining to the life sciences and biomedical topics. The database is maintained by the United States government via the National Library of Medicine at the National Institute of Health and there are millions of articles indexed in this repository. Well over 5000 journals are represented and the decision as to whether or not to index a journal is based on considerations of both scientific policy and scientific quality. A journal applying for inclusion and indexing in PubMed must have ample scope and coverage, along with adequate technical merit in the papers represented. The journal must also demonstrate suitably high levels of objectivity, credibility and quality.
