Available for online searchingsince 1971, MEDLINE includes references to articlesindexed from 1949 to the present. Citations inMEDLINE are assigned MeSH® Terms andPublication Types from NLM's controlled vocabulary.MEDLINE citations and abstracts are available as the primary component of NLM's PubMed® database,which is searchable via the Internet both directly andthrough the NLM Gateway.The subject scope of MEDLINE is biomedicine andhealth, broadly defined to encompass those areas of the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemicalsciences, and bioengineering needed by health professionals and others engaged in basic research andclinical care, public health, health policy development,or related educational activities. The majority of the publications covered in MEDLINE are scholarly journals; a small number of newspapers, magazines,and newsletters considered useful to particular segments of NLM's broad user communityare alsoincluded.The majority of journals are selected for MEDLINEwith the advice and guidance of the LiteratureSelection Technical Review Committee (LSTRC),which meets three times each year. The LSTRC is an NIH-chartered Advisory Committee composed of fifteen authorities such as physicians, researchers,educators, editors, health sciences librarians andhistorians knowledgeable in biomedicine and the lifesciences.For a number of years, additional serials were selected by external organizations with which NLM hadspecial collaborative arrangements. These titles,indicated by the symbol “[C]”, complement the  Index Medicus ® titles that are recommended by LSTRC.  Index Medicus ceased hardcopy publication with theDecember 2004 issue, but continues to be a virtualsubset for MEDLINE in PubMed®.The symbol “s)” is used before titles that are indexedselectively, i.e., indexed only for articles relating tothe fields of biomedicine and life sciences. Thesymbol “*” identifies titles indexed in  Abridged Index Medicus , which ceased hardcopy publication with theDecember 1997 issue, but is still available online in NLM’s PubMed® database as a search subset limitcalled “Core clinical journals.”The 5,246 journals being indexed for MEDLINE as of January 2008 are listed in four sections:(1)  Alphabetic listing by abbreviated title, followed by full title;(2)  Alphabetic listing by full title, followed byabbreviated title;(3)  Alphabetic listing by subject field; and(4)  Alphabetic listing by country of publication.In addition, there are three introductory sections whichlist titles that have been newly selected for indexingduring the past year, titles that have undergone a titlechange during the past year, and titles that are nolonger indexed because they either ceased publicationor were deselected as titles to be indexed for MEDLINE . SUBJECT HEADINGS All subject headings used are from the most recentedition of NLM’s controlled vocabulary, MedicalSubject Headings (MeSH). The appropriate medicalspecialty is used as a descriptor whenever possiblerather than an organ or disease term. That is,Dermatology is used as a subject heading for   Journal of Cutaneous Pathology rather than Skin or SkinDiseases. When a specific heading applies to only oneor two titles, a more general heading is assigned. FILING ORDER  Entries in the title abbreviation and full title sectionsare sorted letter by letter. Numbers sort before letters.Special characters are ignored, except for the “&”,which sorts before numbers. ABBREVIATIONS OF TITLES The title abbreviations appearing in the List of  Journals Indexed for MEDLINE  before 2008 wereconstructed at NLM using the  List of Title Word  Abbreviations (LTWA). The  LTWA is maintained bythe ISSN (International Standard Serial Number)International Centre. For more information aboutthe Centre and its LTWA, please consult the ISSNWeb site at http://www.issn.org. As of March 2007 (i.e., for titles first in the 2008 LJI), NLM began accepting the abbreviations assigned bythe International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)Centre and modify the punctuation and capitalizationto conform to NLM standards. The ISSN key titlev    abbreviation is stripped of all punctuation except for  parentheses around a title qualifier. INTERNATIONAL STANDARD SERIAL  NUMBER   The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is aserial identifier consisting of a unique seven-digitnumber and an eighth check digit. The ISSN uniquelyidentifies a serial title, regardless of language, and istherefore useful in international information exchangeand in machine storage of serials data. The ISSN isassigned to a serial title by the appropriate nationalcenter of the ISSN Network, which is coordinated bythe ISSN International Centre in Paris. The NationalSerials Data Program (NSDP) of the Library of Congress is the United States Center of the ISSN Network. The ISSN is irrevocably linked to the keytitle of the serial. If the title of a continuing serialchanges, a new ISSN must be assigned to the newtitle. If a title is published in both print and electronicformat, there should be a separate ISSN for eachformat. In the  List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE  ,the ISSN is printed on the third line of the entry, andthe format corresponding to each ISSN is designated by a parenthentical (P) for “print” or (E) for “electronic” following the number. More informationabout the ISSN is available athttp://www.issn.org . DATES OF PUBLICATION The dates of publication appear on the left-hand sideof the last line of the entry. These data contain theyears of the first issue for titles currently publishedand the first and last years for titles that have ceased publication or have been superseded or continued byanother title. Unknown years are indicated with a “?”.The dates given are publication dates, and do notnecessarily represent NLM’s holdings or issuesindexed for MEDLINE. PERMANENT PAPER NOTICE Entries for indexed journals known to be printed onacid-free paper contain the designation ‘Acid-Free’.The Acid-free notice appears to the left of the NLMunique identifier.To report other MEDLINE journals printed on acid-free paper, contact: Head, Preservation and CollectionManagement Section, National Library of Medicine,8600 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20894. For additional information about Acid-Free Paper for Biomedical Literature, seehttp://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/factsheets/acidfree.html The latest edition of American National StandardANSI/NISO Z39.48, “Permanence of Paper for Publications and Documents in Libraries andArchives” can be found athttp://www.niso.org/. NLM UNIQUE IDENTIFIER  The NLM unique identifier consists of either a number with up to nine digits or an eight-digit number followed by an alphabetic character. It is used bymedical libraries in reporting serial holdings data toDOCLINE Serial Holdings (formerly calledSERHOLD ® ), NLM’s database of machine-readableholdings statements for serial titles held by U.S.,Canadian, and Mexican biomedical libraries. Theunique identifier appears at the bottom right corner of each entry. In PubMed, this number is labeled as“JID” in the MEDLINE display format and as “NLMID” in the Entrez Journals database(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=Jo urnals).When requesting serial interlibrary loans from the National Library of Medicine, please include the NLMcall number (or On Order or In Process notation) andthe NLM unique identifier.
