  • Citation services: UKPMC contains ‘Cited By’ information as an alternative way to navigate the literature.
  • Text mining services. UKPMC has incorporated text-mining approaches to semantically enrich content and integrate it with related database resources.

  • Grantee services. Through UKPMC+ grantees can deposit manuscripts, link papers to grants, publish online portfolios and view citation information on their papers. .

The article also clarifies the relationship between PMC and UKPMC, providing historical context and future directions.
