PubMed (1950 to the present) covers the world's biomedical and health sciences journal literature. The type of information contained in PubMed ranges from the basic biomedical sciences like anatomy, physiology, biochemistry to clinical information outlining the nature and course of disease or injury, as well as its treatment. Other aspects of medicine covered by the database are: public health, health promotion, bioethics, medical education, legal aspects of medical practice, the nature of health science professions, etc. PubMed also contains a nursing subset and a dentistry subset, each of which indexes the major journals in these areas.
