How does the National Library of Medicine (NLM) decide which journals to index? How can you find out if the journal that you wish to publish in is one of the more than 5600 titles indexed by NLM? These questions and more will be answered in this webinar!

Join staff of the U.S. National Library of Medicine to learn how journals are selected for MEDLINE and PubMed Central, how NLM has responded to an evolving scholarly communication ecosystem, and how to use NLM resources in assessing the quality of a publication such as one in which you might publish your work.
