An updated version of PubMed is now available at  It includes a more responsive design, especially for mobile devices, and improved search functionality but still offers the features and data that you rely on.

New Pubmed Homepage

Responsive design

The new responsive layout offers better support for accessing PubMed content with the increasingly popular small-screen devices such as mobile phones and tablets. The interface is compatible with any screen size, which provides a fresh, consistent look and feel throughout the application, regardless of how you access it.  A single, responsive website means that the features you use on the desktop are also available on your mobile device. Features include:

  • Log in to My NCBI
  • Advanced search
  • Filters
  • Timeline
  • Sort order
  • Cite
  • Share
  • Publisher and PMC icons
  • Outside Tool icons

Improved search

Find highly relevant articles more easily using the Best Match sort (see A in the diagram below), now the default sort order in PubMed. Best Match uses a state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm that is trained on aggregated user searches. The Best Match algorithm ranks search results according to several relevance signals. For more information about Best Match, please see the article Best Match: New relevance search for PubMed.

The features and data you rely on

The new PubMed includes the features you rely on for searching, as well as saving and sharing your results.

  • Use the Results by Year graph to see trends in literature over time or to refine your search results by publication year (see C).
  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography. (see D).
  • Go to the advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searches to create complex search strings (see E).
