Abstract

PubMed, MEDLINE and PubMed Central are all funded by the National Library of Medicine but are different databases. • PubMed has been reported to include some articles published in predatory journals. • MEDLINE and PubMed policies for the selection of journals for database inclusion are slightly different. • Weaknesses in the criteria and procedures for indexing journals in PubMed Central may allow publications from predatory journals to leak into PubMed. • Closing these loopholes is necessary to protect the integrity of reputable databases and safeguard biomedical research.
