New Europe PMC service enables access to more resources

Share this on social media:

Europe PMC is now providing direct links from articles to relevant externally-held information, and enables third parties to suggest relevant resources that enrich existing content.

The External Links Service is a mechanism for people to publish links from articles in Europe PMC to related information or tools. It can be used to link databases, datasets, full text articles, community commentary or coursework too.

The service has initially been made live with three providers: Dryad, which is a  digital repository for the data underlying scientific publications; Train online, which provides free courses from EBI on Europe's most widely used data resources; and Bielefeld University Institutional Repository, which provides free-to-access article full text not otherwise available on Europe PMC.
