European Bioinformatics Institute to lead UK PubMed Central in 2011-2016
Date:7/28/2011

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory's European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) has been awarded the contract to run and lead the development of UK PubMed Central (UKPMC), the free online literature resource for life science researchers.

Now five years old, UKPMC has grown from a simple mirror of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) PubMed Central site to a stand-alone site providing access to a repository of over 2 million full-text biomedical research articles, over 25 million citations from PubMed and Agricola, patents from the European Patent Office, UK treatment guidelines and biomedical PhD theses. Content is discoverable via an integrated full text and abstract search and is semantically enriched by the application of cutting edge text-mining approaches. Over 250 000 articles in this valuable resource are published under open-access licenses, which means that their contents can be freely reused.

The UK funding organisations that support UKPMC wish to build upon this success through a new five-year contract awarded to EMBL-EBI, who will lead the development of the service in partnership with the University of Manchester and the British Library. The goal is to build a gold-standard digital repository for the biomedical literature that benefits life science researchers throughout the world.

"We want to help researchers make the best possible use of the scientific literature by building deep content links between articles and the underlying data," said Dr Johanna McEntyre, Head of Literature Services at EMBL-EBI. "If we manage that, UKPMC will give people a chance to navigate the biomedical information space in an intuitive way."

The service will be funded by a significantly expanded group of funding organisations: eight funders launched the service in 2007; the new contract sees the participation of 18 UK and European funders, led by the Wellcome Trust.
