In January 2023, the Lehigh University Libraries upgraded from MEDLINE Complete to MEDLINE Ultimate, a research database from EBSCOhost that combines the indexing of MEDLINE with cost-effective, full-text access to journals. More than 500 additional titles are now available, including:
- The Journal of Neuroscience (which, combined with the current 6 month Open Access embargo, replaces direct access from the publisher)
- Journals from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS): Science Immunology, Science Signaling and Science Translational Medicine
- Titles from the American Physiological Society, including the American Journal of Physiology: Cell Physiology, Journal of Applied Physiology and more.
This adds to titles previously made available via MEDLINE Complete, including:
- 8 JAMA specialty journals, including JAMA Internal Medicine, JAMA Pediatrics, and JAMA Psychiatry (full-text available 2013-present after a one-month embargo)
- Annals of Internal Medicine
- American Journal of Public Health
- The Biochemical Journal and The Biochemical Society Transactions
If you frequently access these publications, you can use the hyperlinks above as bookmarks. You can also find and access these and other electronic journals to which the Libraries’ subscribe from the “E-Journals” tab of the Libraries’ homepage, and directly here. Finally, if you are interested in setting up alerts to any publications, you can contact your librarian for assistance, follow these instructions or use BrowZine to track your favorite titles and be alerted to new articles. Note that with all research databases there can sometimes be delays in posting full-text articles. If that is the case and you need access immediately, please use our free, quick, and easy Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
You can access MEDLINE Ultimate by using the Database tab of the search box on the library homepage, browsing the libraries’ A-Z database list, or using this direct link.
The full-text content within MEDLINE Ultimate will also be made discoverable through other library research systems, including via the Lehigh Links functionality in Google Scholar and the Web of Science, the Libraries’ Articles search, and other search interfaces.
If you are interested in learning more about the Libraries’ collections, how to access them and use them efficiently, please feel free to contact your librarian.
