1. What is the relationship between Chemistry Central, PubMed Central and PubMed?
PubMed is the US National Library of Medicine's search service that provides access to over 11 million citations and abstracts in MEDLINE, PreMEDLINE, and other related databases, with links to participating online journals.
PubMed Central is a public initiative, sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health, to create "a barrier-free repository for peer reviewed primary research reports in the life sciences." PubMed Central does not accept publications directly from authors. Instead, existing publishers will be able to contribute to PubMed Central by making the full text of their peer-reviewed original research available through the PubMed Central archive.
Chemistry Central is a commercial publisher that publishes a range of journals across all areas of chemistry. All original research articles are peer reviewed and, if published, made immediately and freely available through PubMed Central, as well as through Chemistry Central. Chemistry Central is part of BiomedCentral, part of Springer Science+Business Media.
