PubMed reflects linear increase in ophthalmology publications

September 1, 2015

The number of ophthalmology articles published and recorded in PubMed from 1998 to 2012 significantly increased in linear progression for both adult and pediatric ophthalmology topics, according to a study.

“We found that there was a linear increase in publications over the study period in both pediatric and adult publications. However, the rate of increase was faster for adult publications (multiplication factor of 1.88) than for pediatric publications (multiplication factor of 1.66),” Michael Mimouni, MD, and colleagues said in the study.
