Our Scientific Editors perform both substantive and copy editing of grant proposals, journal articles, and other reports of original research written by MD Anderson physicians and scientists for the professional literature, funding agencies, and other external (non-MD Anderson) audiences. 

Our librarians can provide expert searching for clinical or academic research, and hospital administration. This service is available to the faculty and staff at MD Anderson.

What is PubMed?

PubMed is an interface for searching biomedical and life sciences journal articles and other related content:

  • MEDLINE citations and links to some full-text articles.
  • PubMed Central papers which are open access full-text articles.
  • Articles that are "in process" prior to being indexed with MeSH terms.
  • Articles submitted by publishers "ahead of print."
  • National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Bookshelf.

Currently, PubMed contains over 30,000,000 citations.
