Link to Full-Text Articles

We know how important it is for UpToDate® users in your organization to quickly and easily access full text of journal articles. Some of the benefits of full text linking include:

  • Bring research to the point of care
  • Provide broad context for a deeper understanding of UpToDate topics
  • Increase journal usage
  • Improve return on investment of your journal service
  • Encourage students, residents and fellows to read and assess the primary medical literature

UpToDate now offers multiple ways to get to full text:

Pubmed LinkOut

Your organization can now customize its full text linking options within UpToDate by leveraging our support of PubMed LinkOut. Once activated, clinicians are able to view and link out to the full text of the journals your institution currently subscribes to. You also have the option to customize the text of the LinkOut button.

Ovid Full Text Links

If your organization subscribes to both UpToDate and Ovid, an Ovid Full Text link will appear on UpToDate abstract pages whenever the full text of an article is available through your hospital’s Ovid subscription.

Other Link Resolvers

If your organization uses a link resolver other than Ovid, you may also access full text. Some of the journal subscription services with links to UpToDate include ExLibris (SFX), TDNet, EBSCO (LinkSource) and Serials Solution (Article Linker).
