Please be aware that from today it is unlikely that PubMed will be updated regularly.
- Here’s what the US Gov website has to say about the services that are affected.
- Washington Post, “Absolutely everything you need to know about how the government shutdown will work“.
- Scholarly Kitchen, “October 1st 2013: Government Dysfunction Impacts the Dissemination of Scholarly Research“.
