PubMed is the database for citations to worldwide biomedical literature including research, clinical practice, administration, policy issues, and health care services. Although many of the articles used/created data to conduct the research, not all datasets are available for public use.

The Secondary Source and the LinkOut fields are located near the bottom of the PubMed record.
