NIH Public Access Policy @ Upstate: Find a PMCID
To find the PMCID of a paper included in PubMed Central...
To find the PMCID of an article...
The easiest way to find the PMCID of an article that you authored or supported with an NIH award is to Check your My Bibliography account. My NCBI will automatically add the PMCID to a citation as soon as it is available.
Check PubMed --
If you know the article’s PMID (PubMed ID), go to PubMed , enter the article’s PMID in the search box and click "search". Set Display Settings to Abstract, and the article’s PMCID will be shown to the lower right under the abstract.
If you don’t know the article’s PMID, go to PubMed’s Single Citation Matcher and search for the article. Once the correct article is located, set - Display Settings to Abstract, and the article’s PMCID will be shown to the lower right under the abstract.
For additional assistance finding an article’s PMCID, contact a Reference Librarian at UPSTATE’s Health Sciences Library at (315) 464-7091 or Library Help.
For more information about including PMCIDs in citations, including appropriate placement of citations within documents and examples of citations, see detailed information on NIH’s webpage.
