Formulas to Display in PubMed Titles and Abstracts. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 Mar-Apr;(421):e1.
[Editor’s note: This change was implemented in PubMed on June 6, 2018.]

Policy Change for Multiple Translations of the Same Journal Article. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 May-Jun;(422):b4.
2018 May 21 [posted]
As of June 2018, only the English version of multi-language articles will appear in PubMed/MEDLINE & be indexed for MEDLINE. In the past, when journals published multiple translations of an article in the same issue, the English version was indexed for MEDLINE & citations for any non-English versions were included in PubMed as PubMed-not-MEDLINE (where Medical Subject Headings are not added). In many cases, users will still have access to the non-English versions of these articles when they access the full text on the publisher’s Web site.

MeSH Indexing Policy Change for Obituaries & In Memoriam. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 May-Jun;(422):b5.
2018 May 21 [posted]
As of June 1, 2018, obituaries & in memoriam articles will no longer be cited & indexed with Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) for MEDLINE.
In the past, many obituaries & “in memoriam” articles were indexed for MEDLINE based on subjective criteria that lead to inconsistent coverage; if an article was substantive it was cited & indexed with MeSH. However, most obituaries & in memoriam articles are not substantive & will no longer be cited and indexed. Substantive biographies will continue to be indexed for MEDLINE.
