How Are Journal Articles Found?

A very sensitive PubMed search is performed each day for articles that were added to the PubMed database in the previous 24 hours. About 12 percent of the identified articles are selected for inclusion in the SafetyLit database and Weekly Update Bulletin. The PubMed search strategy details are available. We perform an equivalent weekly search of the WHO Global Index Medicus for articles in languages other than English.

We regularly hand-search the contents of many journals for articles that meet the SafetyLit inclusion criteria.

List of Journals searched at least once per month.

List of Journals searched at least four times a year

List of Journals searched at least once per year.

The lists above can have frequent changes (additions, migrations, removals) that are reflected in real-time.

SafetyLit uses Google Scholar Alerts to identify relevant articles that are not included in the journals that we track on a regular basis. These GS Alerts identify about 10 percent of the journal articles added to the SafetyLit database.
