Wow, this is a big moment for the stem cell community. We officially crossed 300,000 stem cell publications released to PubMed.gov.
PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and NIH that comprises more than 27 million citations for biomedical literature. It is the largest and comprehensive global database that exists for scientific publications.
A few weeks ago, our team realized we were getting extremely close to this milestone. Since then, we have be tracking it every day using this search phrase:
Search Phrase: “stem cell” AND “stem cells”
Below, you can see a screenshot of this major scientific accomplishment:
Many congrats to the research teams that put us over this threshold.
Rates of Stem Cell Scientific Publications by Year
This milestone makes it a phenomenal time to review historical trends. In the graph below, you can see rates of stem cell publications over the past 30 years.
Here’s the data in a table format for those that wish to see it in more detail:
Congratulations to all that have published stem cell publications over the past several decades. Were you one of the researchers who helped us reach this milestone? Comment below and include your PubMed link, because we would love to recognize your contribution.
