PubMed/MEDLINE Research Tips

MEDLINE is the largest component of PubMed, the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) database of biomedical citations and abstracts that is searchable on the Web at no cost. The MEDLINE database covers from 1950 to the present and is updated on a daily basis. MEDLINE includes more than 20 million citations from 5,000 different biomedical journals, including Physical Therapy (PTJ). APTA members have free access to PTJ.
