PubMed includes material that is NOT in MEDLINE.  This is not an OVID issue.

Subject: OVID Medline a SUBSET?

I was under the impression that the Ovid Medline included the full Medline.
When doing a verification for Ccontemporary Pediatrics I discovered it was
not indexed in Ovid, but was in PubMed-- I did a quick look comparing the
various contemporary....... journals and it appears that a good many are not
in Ovid that are in PubMed.  I am wondering if others have found missing
journals and to what extent. Maybe this is a temporary clich-- I have not
been able to get an answer from Ovid.
