NCBI Labs Project Update: PubMed Journals Discontinued. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 May-Jun;(422):b12.
2018 June 27 [posted]
On June 15, 2018, PubMed Journals, an NCBI Labs project, was discontinued.
PubMed Journals was launched in September 2016 as part of NCBI Labs, a product incubator for delivering new features & capabilities to NCBI end users. PubMed Journals helped people follow the latest biomedical literature by making it simple to find & follow journals, browse new articles, & included a Journal News Feed to track new arrivals, news links, trending articles & important article updates.
We appreciate the feedback provided by our users that helped to make PubMed Journals a productive test of new ideas. In the time the experiment ran, nearly 20,000 people followed 10,453 distinct journals & each customer followed three journals on average. Though PubMed Journals will no longer exist as a separate entity, we hope to add its features into future NCBI products.
