Europe PMC: a full-text literature database for the life sciences and platform for innovation.
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.
Mentions: Europe PMC has integrated ORCIDs into article records and search systems (Figure 2). If someone has claimed an article, the ORCID is displayed below the abstract; clicking on it will elicit a search based on that ORCID. A search by ORCID is also available as an option by clicking on an author name. If you know someone's ORCID, the correct search syntax can be ensured by selecting ‘ORCID’ from the pull-down list of Bibliographic Fields in the Advanced Search page. This is a particularly useful approach for people who have frequently occurring last names, or have changed their name.
