The editorial policy of languages is being changed in Medline
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
After exploring the trend of publications language in a very famous database in the USA (Medline), all publications of three non-English speaking countries (France, Germany, and Russia) in English and domestic languages indexed in the Medline through 1965-2005 were extracted and analysed. The study showed that the editorial policy of Medline is undergoing change. The policy makers of this database have focused their attention on the literature of science in English.
