Thank you for writing to the help desk. Please note, citations for JOURNALNAME are added to PubMed by the publisher. Even if the information is correct on the journal website, the error was most likely introduced in the source data submitted to PubMed.

Therefore, we ask that you please report basic citation errors in PubMed data directly to the publisher, including errors in author names, affiliations, or citation bibliographic information (such as date of publication, volume, issue, and page or e-location), typographical errors in titles or abstracts, and errors in grants or databanks.


The PubMed Data Management System (PMDM) allows publishers or their authorized representatives to update or correct nearly all elements of their PubMed citations.

When writing to the publisher, ask that your email be directed to the team or department that submits XML citation data to PubMed.  That same team will be able to fix any errors.

Please supply your publisher with the following information:    

  • PMID    
  • Journal name, volume, issue, and page     
  • Article Title     
  • Author names  
  • Clear indication of incorrect and correct information
