What is PubMed Central?

PubMed Central® (PMC) is very similar to PubMed.  It is a smaller collection of citations for free biomedical and life sciences literature.  However, we recommend that you do not rely on PMC.  As a Rush associate, you have access to many journals, books and other media that can be found in PubMed - but as they are a paid subscription, you will not find them in PubMed Central.
