Clarification Regarding Records

The Publisher records in this database have recently been added to PubMed via electronic submission from a publisher and will proceed soon to the next stage ("In-Process"). This tag is also on citations received before late-2003 if they are from (1) journals not indexed for MEDLINE or (2) a journal that was accepted for MEDLINE after the citations' publication date. Bibliographic data on these citations have not been reviewed.

The In-Data-Review records have been submitted to the National Library of Medicine electronically by the publisher. The journal title, date of publication, and volume/issue (i.e., source data) are being checked.

The In-Process records are undergoing a citation level review – i.e., the author names, article title, and pagination are being checked.
