PubMed Central Primer and XML101

PubMed comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. To get journal articles indexed in PubMed, a journal must be selected as a MEDLINE journal or deposited to PubMed Central, which requires full text JATS XML. This can be a confusing and intimidating process for some publishers. Additionally, publishers have three chances to successfully submit validated XML.

DCL specializes in the conversion and submission of documents to PubMed Central. It can be a daunting process to understand and valid XML is key to submission and downstream discovery of journal content.

DCL's David Turner recently explained the process of submitting journals to PubMed Central. It's also important to understand the benefit of XML and its role in disseminating and discovering journal articles. XML is a key building block not only for submission to PubMed Central but also an organization’s digital strategy.

Below are some of the highlights from David's PubMed Central Primer that we think you'll enjoy:

We also have a PubMed Central Resources handout that lists relevant websites and references. And when you need support with the process, we're here to help!
