Medline provides access to bibliographic information that includes MEDLINE, OLDMEDLINE, as well as:

  • The out-of-scope citations (e.g., articles on plate tectonics or astrophysics) from certain MEDLINE journals, primarily general science and chemistry journals, for which the life sciences articles are indexed for MEDLINE.
  • Citations that precede the date that a journal was selected for MEDLINE indexing.
  • Some additional life science journals that submit full text to PubMedCentral and receive a qualitative review by NLM.

Medline's in-process records  provide basic citation information and abstracts before the citations are indexed with NLM's MeSH Terms and added to MEDLINE.
