PubMed will be switching its default interface from the Legacy PubMed to the new version referred to as New PubMed on or after May 18, 2020. This terminology will be used throughout the guide to differentiate between the two distinct search tools
This guide is being revised to present a side-by-side illustration of how to perform common tasks in Legacy PubMed and in New PubMed. These comparisons show the desktop versions of PubMed. New PubMed is intended to be used with a variety different devices and features a mobile-friendly search.
A goal of the New PubMed is to create search functionality and features researchers value most. Thus, they encourage direct feedback to PubMed via the feedback link located at the bottom right of any New PubMed page. The New PubMed is intended to be a continually developing product, thus your continuous feedback will help make a useful and robust product.
When filling out the direct feedback form, we encourage you to notify Carolyn as well. This will allow us to keep track of the desires or pain-points of the New PubMed, and work to find alternate solutions.
