The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is part of the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM). PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics.
Reprints Desk now offers another easy method for placing research retrieval ("document delivery") orders for PubMed by using the 'Send To: Order' dropdown menu from any search results page.
Step #1: Bookmark http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?tool=reprintsdeskdds in your Internet browser bookmarks
Step #2: Conduct your search
Step #3: From the search results list, select the references for papers you wish to access
Step #4: Click the 'Send To' link near the header of the search results page
Step #5: Select 'Order' and click the 'Order Articles' button
Step 6: Login to your Article Galaxy account on reprintsdesk.com web page that appears
Step 7: Click the 'Order Full Text' button for the selected references and Article Galaxy will fill your order, providing links to download purchased PDFs, to access rentals, or to view subscription content.
As an alternative to bookmarking the starting URL mentioned above, you can also pre-configure your 'My NCBI account' to send orders to Reprints Desk's Article Galaxy platform by following these steps
