Index of the biomedical journal literature. This GWU-specific link is different from the publicly accessible version, because records will display a full text link when the Himmelfarb Library has a subscription to that journal. For this reason readers are advised to click the link on this page (or from the Himmelfarb Library website) and not to “google” PubMed.
