Journal of PKU (Health Sciences) Included in PubMed Central by the National Library of Medicine
On June 18 2020, the Journal of Peking University (Health Sciences) was accredited by the PubMed Central (PMC) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and included by PMC in the form of Chinese full text. This is a significant breakthrough after the Journal was included by PubMed/Medlilne in the form of English summary in 2003, and will greatly increase the international spread and influence of the academic findings published in the Journal.
PMC is globally the most authoritative database of biomedical journals with open access (OA) and has three forms of journal inclusion: full participation, NIH portfolio, and selective deposit. The requirements for journals of full participation are very strict, which demands both the Scientific Quality Standard and the Technical Requirements met. The Journal of Peking University (Health Sciences) is the journal of full participation in PMC. The inclusion acknowledges both the quality of the Journal and the findings published in the Journal. From now on, the published papers in the Journal will be presented and searched in PMC in full text, which realizes the connection between Chinese scientific and technological journal network publishing platform and international general authoritative database platform, and expand the promotion and international influence of the Journal.
