The PMID (PubMed Identifier) ​​is a unique number assigned to each PubMed citation in the field of natural sciences, and to each biomedical article published in scientific journals. A related PubMed Central Archive may additionally assign another number, the PMCID (PubMed Central Identifier), which is normally written with the PMC prefix. In 2005, there were between 15 and 16 million PMID numbers in use, starting with number 1, and about 1 million new numbers are added each year. The unique identifier (UID) is the label of the search box in PubMed search queries. Using the PMID as the search argument (with or without the [UID] tag), PubMed will display the relevant abstract. For example, to locate information about this item: Chobanian AV; Bakris GL; Black HR; et al. (2003). "The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure: the JNC 7 report". JAMA. 289 (19): 2560—72. PMID 12748199. doi: 10.1001 / pit.289.19.2560. CS1 maintenance: Explicit use et al. (link) go to and enter number 12748199. PMIDs can also be used in some other databases, such as Entrez, which is available at
