Europe PMC: a full-text literature database for the life sciences and platform for innovation.

- Nucleic Acids Res. (2014)

Bottom Line: Formerly known as UKPMC, the service was rebranded in November 2012 as Europe PMC to reflect the scope of the funding agencies that support it.Several new developments have enriched Europe PMC considerably since then.Europe PMC now offers RESTful web services to access both articles and grants, powerful search tools such as citation-count sort order and data citation features, a service to add publications to your ORCID, a variety of export formats, and an External Links service that enables any related resource to be linked from Europe PMC content.

(a) Total scope of content (abstracts and articles) available in Europe PMC. Blue columns represent abstracts; the green column represents full text. Actual numbers of records at the time of writing: PubMed: 24 174 318; Patents: 4 229 297; Agricola: 577 871; Europe PMC full-text abstract not in PubMed: 447 427; Other smaller sources of metadata: 201 988; Europe PMC full text: 2 988 235. (b) Proportion of full-text articles in Europe PMC expressed, for comparative purposes, as a proportion of abstracts available in PubMed (100%, gray bar), per publication year. Open Access full-text articles are in yellow; ‘read only’ full-text articles are in green. For publication year 2012, around 25% of PubMed is available as full text in Europe PMC, and of those, about 50% are available open access. The slight drop in read-only articles seen in 2013 is due to many articles published in 2013 still being under a 12-month embargo period at the time of writing.

Figure 1: (a) Total scope of content (abstracts and articles) available in Europe PMC. Blue columns represent abstracts; the green column represents full text. Actual numbers of records at the time of writing: PubMed: 24 174 318; Patents: 4 229 297; Agricola: 577 871; Europe PMC full-text abstract not in PubMed: 447 427; Other smaller sources of metadata: 201 988; Europe PMC full text: 2 988 235.

The slight drop in read-only articles seen in 2013 is due to many articles published in 2013 still being under a 12-month embargo period at the time of writing.

Mentions: Europe PMC supplements the full-text article collection with abstracts from a variety of sources. In particular, Europe PMC ingests all of PubMed, updated daily (currently about 24 million records), adds records from the agricultural collection Agricola monthly (about 600 000 records) and contains international patent abstracts from the life sciences domain and ad hoc additions of metadata from other smaller sources. In cases where a full-text article in Europe PMC does not have a PubMed record, we also create a metadata record—there are about 440K of these, and they reflect records in flux (not yet in PubMed but will be) or records for articles of a type not taken by PubMed. The total content available in Europe PMC at the time of writing can be seen in Figure 1a.
