The External Links Service is a mechanism for people to publish links from articles in Europe PMC to related information or tools. It could be used to link databases, datasets, full text articles, community commentary or coursework too. If it is in scope for Europe PubMed Central and can be linked to sets of articles, then it is possible to participate.

The service has initially been made live with three providers:
Dryad – a digital repository for the data underlying scientific publications
- Train online – free courses from EBI on Europe’s most widely used data resources
Bielefeld University Institutional Repository – free to access article full text not otherwise available on Europe PMC
The new External Links Service page gives further information about the service including ‘Rules of Engagement’ and what to next if you want to share links with us. The page can also be found under the ‘Resources’ menu on Europe PMC.
As always we welcome your feedback on this new development, and would be delighted to hear from you if you want to get involved.
