Europe PMC

Free access to biomedical and life sciences research articles, biological and medical patents records, grant data and more.

About the collection

Europe PMC is a free information resource for biomedical and life sciences researchers, backed by a growing number of European funders, who expect their grantholders to make their published research available to the widest possible audience. By linking grants to publications, the Europe PMC plus service enables Europe PMC funding organisations, and the researchers, they fund to better assess the impact of research.

Europe PMC is delivered in partnership by the British Library, the European Bioinformatics Institute and the University of Manchester.
