First GMS journal to be indexed in MEDLINE

Since mid-August, our journal "GMS German Medical Science" is completely indexed in the MEDLINE database and thus available via the PubMed search engine (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/). For each found article, you can access the free fulltext at www.egms.de/en/gms/ very quickly thanks to PubMed's LinkOut feature. Besides, access to the PubMed Central fulltext versions of the articles is also possible.

MEDLINE is hosted by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/) and is the most popular literature database worldwide in the fields of medicine and life science. For research results published at GMS and their authors, the possibility to be found via PubMed/MEDLINE will thus lead to a very much enhanced visibility within the scientific community. Whether a new journal is accepted for MEDLINE or not is decided by an independent review committee based on strict evaluation criteria - therefore, acceptance of "GMS German Medical Science" can be seen as appreciation of the journal's quality at the same time.
