PubMed & The National Guidelines Clearing House

Both of these resources are provided free by the U.S. Government.
Integrated within your search, STAT!Ref automatically searches PubMed and the National Guidelines Clearing House for matched results. Related concepts are displayed using the Metathesaurus, provided by the National Library of Medicine's Unified Medical Language System. Users with a PubMed account can register their PubMed "holding name" or "otool id" with us and link directly to PubMed full journal articles they subscribe to.
